Interpretation Introduction

(a)

Interpretation:

The calculations are to be expressed by using correct number of significant figures.

Concept introduction:

Scientific notation is used to write large numbers by shifting the decimal point. It is expressed as the product of a decimal term and 10 raised to some power. Significant figures are used to express a measurement in scientific notation. The significant figures reflect the closeness of measured values to the standard values.

### Explanation of Solution

The given problem is,

(0.0267+0.0019)(4.626)28.7794

The calculation is as follows:

(0.0267+0.0019)(4.626)28.7794=0.0286(4
