Step 1

1 of 2Digits that completely determine the size of something and that are allowed by the measurement resolution are called significant digits.

For example, suppose you have to measure a length of $215.7\text{mm}$ by using the ruler in millimeters. $2$, $1$, $5$ are significant digits and the result is $215\text{mm}$.
