The right triangle to the left
has legs, O and A, and
hypotenuse H. One of its acute
angles is θ. Solve the
following problems (maintain
3 sig figs):
i.
A = 10.0, θ = 30.0o,
O = __________
ii.
O = 10.0, θ = 37.0o,
H = __________
O = 10.0, A = 20.0, θ = __________
There are two rules for determining the number of significant figures:
1) If there is no decimal point--start at the RIGHT and count, beginning with the first non-zero digit.
Examples
340
2 s.f.
30400
3 s.f.
34955
5 s.f.
2) If there is a decimal point--start at the LEFT and count, beginning with the first non-zero digit.
Examples
340.
30400.
0.34955
0.00040
3 s.f.
5 s.f.
5 s.f.
2 s.f.
Determine the number of significant figures (s.f.) in each of the following:
a) 921
______
b) 92100
______
c) 92100.
______
d) 0.000210
______
e) 0.00219
______
f) 93,000,000
______
g) 93,000,003
______
h) 93,000,000.
______
There are also rules for reporting numbers when you multiply and/or divide:
1) Count the sig. figs. in the numbers you are multiplying and/or dividing. Your answer should be
rounded off to the smallest number of sig. figs. in your problem.
Example: a) 28.33 x 3.12 = “88.3896” -----calculator answer



4 s.f.
3 s.f. 6 s.f.
So round to 3 s.f., your answer will be reported as 88.4

b) 28.44 3.12 = “9.080128205” -----calculator answer
  

4 s.f.
3 s.f.
6 s.f.
So round to 3 s.f., your answer will be reported as 9.08
Reminder: Rounding-off rules: Go to next number. If it is 0-4, round down. If it is 5-9, round up.
Report the answer to the following problems, paying particular attention to the correct number of sig. figs.
a) 986.72 / 5.12 =
______
b) 497.7 / 3.0 =
______
c) 920.7 / 4.32 =
______
d) 400.20 x 3.010 =
______
e) 98 x 0.006 =
______
f) .009430 x 4310.9 =
______
g) 45.20 x 0.0071 =
______
h) 9.0 / 3.0 =
______
i) 10. x 300. =
______
j) 10. / 3 =
______
There are also different rules for reporting the answer when you add or subtract:
1) The answer should have the same number of decimal places as that of the number with the least
decimal.
Example:
4.838 g
486.58 g
+1.0023 g
- 421. g_
5.3853 g = 5.385 g
65.58 g = 66 g






is 0-4, so round down.
is 5-9, so round up.
NOTE: IN ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION, DECIMAL POINTS MUST BE LINED UP!!
