Maths IA significant figures

Recommended Posts

Hi there :) 

 

Does anyone know to how many significant figures should the answers be given in an exploration? Is 3 significant figures ok or is that too precise?

My teacher said to use 3 sig figs unless you're trying to show a comparison of very small results which needs more sig figs
