Note the decimal point) if it has five. The identification of the number of significant figures associated with a measurement comes only through knowledge of how the measurement was carried out. 512 inches (four significant figures). Engineering calculations often deal with numbers having unequal numbers of significant figures. A number of logically defensible rules have been developed for various computations. These rules are actually the result of strict mathematical understanding of the propagation of errors due to arithmetical operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
