just to clarify on sig figs...for example if a question asked what is the volume of a box that is 85 m by 92 m by 95 m, the answer is 742900 m^3 but since each number has 2 sig figs, the answer must be reported as 740,000 m^3?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is that correct?

also, 150 has 2 sig figs but 150. has 3...right?

thanks.
