We are authorized to answer three subparts at a time, since you have not mentioned which part you are looking for, so we are answering the first three subparts, please repost your question separately for the remaining subpart.

Step 2

Significant figures are used to express the degree of accuracy of an answer. The rules for identifying significant figures are as follows:

• Non-zero digits are considered as significant figures. (1 to 9)
• Zeros between non-zero digits are considered as significant figures. (for example – 2008 has four significant figures.)
• Zeros that are left to the decimal are not considered as significant figures. (for example – 0000.28 has two significant figures.)
• On the right side of the decimal place, zeros between decimal and non-zero digits are not considered as significant figures. (for example - 0.0028 has two significant figures.)
• On the right side of the decimal place, zeros after the non-zero digits are considered as significant figures. (0.28000 has five significant figures.)
Step 3

1.The given problem is 0.00071 + 0.002 + 0.00008.

0.00071 has 2 significant figures, 0.002 has 1 significant figu re and 0.00008 has ...
