    Quick question for M1 guys. When you are doing a calculation and substituting in previous values like using tension you worked out earlier to find out acceleration or vice versa; do you use the 3.s.f rounded figure or do you store the exact decimal in your calculator and then use that ?
    Always store the figure.

    So when I use that actual number in an equation and want to show it on paper ; how should I do it (if it is a lengthy decimal) ?

    hey if you are rounding 0.445 to 2 decimal places would it be 0.44, because the 2nd place is an even number
