    Hey guys, So I have this assessment and I have to weigh a specific mass of a substance and I am allowed to be within 10% of the specific mass (+/-10%). Say if I have to measure 0.1000g, and my weighed mass is 0.1050g would that be allowed, also would I be allowed a mass in the range 0.1100 and 0.0900g.Thank you

    Yes.

    (0.1000 \pm 10 \%) \text{g} = (0.1000 \pm 0.0100)\text{g}
