Suppose you are asked to determine the perimeter of a seven-sided irregular figure. You make the following measurements:
Side 1 = 3.2 m
Side 2 = 4.8 m
Side 3 = 2.000 m
Side 4 = 8.94 m
Side 5 = 11 m
Side 6 = 7.566 m
Side 7 = 4.0 m

How many significant figures should there be in your calculation for the perimeter?
