If the zeros are significant figures then 900 is correct to 3 significant figures.
If rounding off has occurred then the answer could be 1 sf or 2sf.

For example : If the original number was 903 and rounding off to the nearest ten was required then 900 is correct to 2 significant figures.
If the number was 927 and rounding off to the nearest hundred was required then 900 is correct to 1 significant figure.

# How do you figure how many significant figures a number has?

Generally speaking, one can't have more significant figures in the answer to a mathematical equation than the least number of significant figures of all the values used to generate that equation. 6*6=40 6.0*6.0=36 For example: 1.1/2.3=0.478260869... But it doesn't make sense for the answer to have more significant figures than 2: 0.48. The point of significant figures is that the precision of the answer should reflect the precision of the factors that led to the answer. For example, suppose you were trying to measure the length of two pieces of string, with a ruler graduated down to millimeters. Lets say you wanted the sum of the length of the two strings. It would not make sense to express the sum in nanometers, because the precision of the measurements was in millimeter level. It would also be incorrect to express the sum in centimeters even if the result was a number with one or more trailing zeros, the measurements were accurate to 1 millimeter. 374mm + 626mm = 1000mm NOT 1 meter nor 100cm (but 1.000 meter, or 100.0cm)

# How many significant figures are in .0400?

Zeros must be kept to show the decimal point or to indicate that zero is a significant figure. In this question the 0.0 part of the number is to show the position of the decimal point and does not form part of the significant figure count. If the number has been rounded to the nearest ten-thousandth then 0.0400 is correct to 3 sf. If the number can be rounded to the nearest thousandth then it would be written as 0.040 and would be correct to 2sf. If rounded to the nearest hundredth then it becomes 0.04 and is correct to 1 sf.

# How many significant figures in 0.002?

To assess how many significant figures a number has been given to, you first need to find the greatest non-zero digit. In this case that is the 2. The next step is to count how many digits have been given after this one. In this case there are no more. Thus the figure 0.002 is to 1 significant figure.

# How many significant figures will there be in the answer to 223.4times7.5?

In multiplication you use the lowest number of sig figs. if one number has 3 and the other has 5 the answer should be held to 3 digits. If one has a leading zero ( 0.123) the zero is ignored and the sig figs would be 3. Added: So the answer to the question "How many significant figures will there be in the answer to 223.4times7.5" is to be TWO in the answer of this multiplication (not 1675.5, not 1700, but 1.7 *10 3 )

# How many significant figures are in 0.7?

0.7 has one significant figure. Any non-zero digit is significant (165 has three significant figures). Any zero between non-zero digits is significant (304 has three significant figures). Any zero to the right of a non-zero digit in a number which includes a decimal point is significant (10,000 has one significant figure, .0001 has one significant figure, but 100.0 has four significant figures, as does 0.001000). In this case, only the 7 is significant.

# How many significant figures in 0.020?

# How many significant figures are in 0.003420?

If there is a decimal, you start on the left side and after the first non zero digit, all following digits are signifigant. So 0.003420 has 4 signifigant figures.

# How do you figure out how many significant figures are in a number?

The rules for identifying significant figures when writing orinterpreting numbers are as follows: All non-zero digits are considered significant. For example, 91 hastwo significant figures (9 and 1), while 123.45 has fivesignificant figures (1, 2, 3, 4 and 5). Zeros appearing anywhere between two non-zero digits aresignificant. Example: 101.1203 has seven significant figures: 1, 0,1, 1, 2, 0 and 3. Leading zeros are not significant. For example, 0.00052 has twosignificant figures: 5 and 2. Trailing zeros in a number containing a decimal point aresignificant. For example, 12.2300 has six significant figures: 1,2, 2, 3, 0 and 0. The number 0.000122300 still has only sixsignificant figures (the zeros before the 1 are not significant).In addition, 120.00 has five significant figures since it has threetrailing zeros.

# How many significant figures are in 2400?

There are two significant figures in 2400. You can "dump" the zeros in a case like this. If the number was 55,000, you could dump the zeros there, too, and there'd be two significant figures. When working with a whole number (an integer), you can dump all the zeros to the left of the decimal until you reach the first nonzero digit. In the case of 343,505,000, you can only dump the 3 zeros, so there are 6 significant digits. If 12,005 is what you're working with, you can't dump any zeros and you have 5 significant figures. It's that simple with numbers that don't have any digits to the right of the decimal. There are 2 significant figures in 2400; they are 2 and 4.

# How many significant figures are there in 6.300?

The number 6.300 has four significant digits. We must assume that the only reason for including the two zeroes at the end is to express the precision of the measurement (whatever it was that was measured to yield this number). If you were only confident about the first two numbers, you would express it as 6.3 rather than 6.300 as you did.

# How many significant figures are in -20.0?

Three (3). Rules for significant figures: 1. Leading zeros are never significant. Leading zeros are ones that come before any other digit, such as the first 0 in 0.1 2. Non-zero digits are always significant. 3. Zeros between two non-zero digits are always significant. In 202, the 0 is significant because of this. 4. Trailing zeros are significant if and only if there is a decimal point. For example, 200 has 1 significant figure, but 200. has 3.

Eight significant figures. A significant figure is any non-zerodigit or any embedded or trailing zero. Leading zeros are notsignificant.

# How many significant figures are in 74.30?

Answer: four. All written decimals are significant (even if it is 0). However if you have a physics computation where one number turns out to be x = 2.0 (2 significant figures) and the other turns out to be y = 37.15 (4 significant figures), then to compute the product x*y you should take the least of these significant numbers you are using. Hence, you will find that x*y = 2.0 * 37.15 (= 74.30) = 74 (rounded to the nearest number with 2 significant digits only.) So, it depends on the context you are using this number in.
