I understand that if your doing multiplication, round to the least amount of sig figs. Addition: Round to the least amount of decimal places.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What about a question with both multiplication, division and addition, subtraction?

Such as

(5.2 x 10^4 + 4.2 x 10^-2)/ 3.6 x 10^2

How would I apply sig figs on that?

Thx in advance
