Here's another video I did on adding and multiplying significant figures in the same problem https://youtu.be/tdPlD4U0a7Q

Study Time says:

Ma'am, I have a question ~! 🙂

How many significant figures are there in 0.00?

Sooo , my answer would be 2? Because of rule #3 ? w/c states that:

Rules #3 : Zeros after the decimal are significant.

Am I right or is this an exemption?
