Division with Significant Figures Worksheet

Customizable and Printable

Worksheet Overview

When performing division with measurements it is important to round the quotient to the correct number of significant digits. When dividing two numbers it is common for the result to contain a repeating or recurring decimal. Without proper rounding the results of division calculations may misrepresent the accuracy and precision of the number. Quotients of division calculations should be rounded to so the number of significant digits do not exceed the number of significant digits in the dividend or divisor. This customizable and printable worksheet is designed for students to practice division and rounding quotients to the correct number of significant digits.
