23. 100. cm – 1.6 cm _________________
___________________
25. 100 s – 1.3 s
24. 5.7 cm x 0.20 cm
_________________ 26. 10.2 s  0.4 s

Corrections: The following problems have been performed on a calculator. Rewrite the answers so that
they have the correct precision. One answer is correct.
1. 1.25 g x 8.6 C = 10.75 gC
________________
2. 100.00 g 
________________
25.0 mL = 4 g/mL
3. 500.00 cm x 40.00 cm = 20,000 cm2
________________
4. 38 cm + 5.100 cm + 4.13 cm = 47.23 cm
________________
5. 716.55 g – 0.005 g = 716.545 g
________________
6. 28.00 g  85.2 cm3 = 0.3286385 g/cm3
________________
7. 8.000 km – 0.54 km = 7.46 km
________________
8. 23.18 m + 6.819 m = 29.999 m
________________
Calculations: Express your answers with the correct number of significant digits.
