    Usually there is a unit/significant figure to work by but in this case i'll assume its to 1 d.p
    0.1÷2= 0.05
    7.6+/- 0.05
    7.6 to nearest tenths = 7.55 & 7.65

    they have started calling them "error intervals" for the new exams....

    so your error interval would be written as

    7.55≤ L <7.65

    if the measurement was L for length for instance.
