Solved Example

Q. Which measurement is more precise?\newlineChoices:\newline(A) 1616 miles\newline(B) 93.293.2 miles
  1. Identify measurements: Identify the given measurements.\newlineWe have two measurements: 1616 miles and 93.293.2 miles.
  2. Determine decimal places: Determine which measurement has more decimal places.\newlineThe measurement 1616 miles has no decimal places, while the measurement 93.293.2 miles has one decimal place.
  3. Compare precision: Compare the precision of the measurements.\newlineA measurement with more decimal places is considered more precise because it indicates a finer level of measurement. Therefore, 93.293.2 miles is more precise than 1616 miles.
