Significant figures

How would I go and express these numbers with 3 significant figures in normal notation?


for d and e aren't they already with 3 significant figures and also in normal notation?

for a, b, and c I can't figure out what to do since It isn't explained how to get 3 significant figures in normal notation though I usually use scientific notation when questions like this come up.

  1. Count three places. Round to the third. I use round to the even number for a number ending in 5.
    a. 15.1
    b. 1440
    c. 83,900
    d and e are ok as is.
