Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was just working on a problem involving gravitational constants like [tex]\frac{\Delta(g)}{g}[/tex]. Anyway, its been awhile since I have been in my intro physics classes and forgot how to make approximations that allow the adding of large numbers with small numbers (in my case 9.80665 + 2.94x10^-10) and still retain the significant figures. I can post the problem if needed.

Thanks
