Significant figure rounding.

  1. Oct 12, 2007 #1
    6.0221367 is a number rounded to 8 significant figures.

    In a question, I am asked which of these shows correct rounding off.

    6.022

    6.0

    6.02214

    Aren't they all correct? It does not specify to how many figures.

    They all look correct to me.

    And it is a question for an online tutorial. I don't know what to do.
