    So in an experiment I did, I calculated my variable to 2d.p. which is the highest accuracy I could do it to. Now I have to calculate the natural logs, averages and maximum deviations etc. to allow me to plot a straight line graph. Should I do all of these to 2d.p? Why?

    I would personally use the same number of significant figures over the same number of dp. But if its a biology experiment stick to just using 2 dp and you'll be fine.
