I just started physics and have a few questions on significant digits.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to put this number into scientific notation

2 999 900

My answer is 2.3 * 10 (to the power of 6)

Is that right?

My other question is 8.83/0.002 = "4415"

To write it with sig digits I can only use one because of "0.002"

So would my answer be 4000?

And my last question is 8.56 * 2.3= "19.688"

With sig. digits = 20

Are these correct?
