Know rules for significant figures
1 - zeros located between nonzero numbers are significant (i.e. 101 - 3 sig figures)
2 - Zeros at beginning of number containing decimal are not significant (i.t. 0.015 - 2 sig figures)
3 - Zeros at the end of a number containing a decimal point are significant (i.e. 25.20 - 4 sig figures)
4 - Zeros at the end of a number not containing decimal are ambigous ( i.e. 100 has at least 1 significant figure but can have up to 3)
