Add, and give your answer to the correct number of significant digits.

12 cm+0.031 cm+7.969 cm =

 

20.00cm was wrong, is it 20.000cm as that is the most decimal places shown? yet 4 sig figs is the most shown in the question. or is 20cm correct as the decimals become insiginificant?

 

143 cm +289.25 cm +  68.45cm + 6.00cm = 506.70cm was also wrong

nonzero digits are significant, so it would be 20cm and 506.7cm

thanks,

 

24789.4 km / 43.5 km = 569.871 km  marked incorrect, is the answer they are looking for 5.69.8 km to match the sig figs in the question?

I think it's for nonzero digits. :)
