Answer #1

In addition and substraction, we round off the answer to the least number of digits in any number (after decimal)

101 cm - 99.1 cm = 1.9

So here there is no number after decimal in 101 so we will round
off the answer as **2 cm [rounded to ones place]**

**so there is one significant number**

b) 0.5 atm + 9.8 atm = 10.3

There is one digit, in each given number to be added, after decimal. so the answer will rounded off to one digit after decimal

so answer is 10.3 [Three significant number]
