Physics Sig Figs

When you are multiplying two numbers, how do you determine the number of significant figures?


You go with the lowest sig figs in your problem. so suppose you multiply 2.34 and 8.9574, in your product you should have 3 sig figs as the lowest sig fig in your problem is 2.34 which is 3 sig figs.

hope this helps.
