Q. 7

# How many significant figures should be present in the answer of the following calculations?

Answer :

Rule- For quantities created from measured quantities by multiplication and division, the calculated result should have as many significant figures as the *measured* number with the *least* number of significant figures.

Here, the least significant figure is of two. Therefore, there would be two significant figures present in the answer to the following calculations.
