    Can you help me solve this problem please?

    A cube measured 4.40 cm on all sides; calculate the correct number of significant figures, the volume of the cube in cm3 & m3

    Ummm... If possible, can it have a solution please?

    P.S. This is not a homework. I have a quiz tomorrow and I don't know how to solve a problem like this.


    THANK YOU!

    The Q is in 3 sig. fig., so you should answer in 3sf.

    The volume of a cube is l x d x h = 4.40 cubed = (I'm sure you've got a calculator).

    Since the 4.40 is cm, the volume will be cm3

    There are 1000 cm3 in 1 dm3 and 1000 dm3 in 1 m3.
