(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

lets say we have A * B

A=12.8 + 0.2

B=3.75 + 0.08

how would we calculate the new uncertainty value

ive seen soo many ways of doing this im a bit confused

thanks in advance

2. Relevant equations

any equation used to calculate uncertainty

3. The attempt at a solution

the 2 main ways ive seen is one involving partial dervatives and the other is taking the square root of the answer times the (uncertainties/value)^{2}

im a little confused about which one to use
