5 LESSON 1.1 Precision and Significant Digits N.Q.3 Choose a level of accuracy appropriate to limitations on measurement when reporting quantities.? ESSENTIAL QUESTION How do you use significant digits when reporting the results of calculations involving measurements? Precision Precision is the level of detail of a measurement. More precise measurements are obtained by using instruments marked in smaller units. For example, a ruler marked in millimeters allows for more precise measurements than a ruler that is marked only in centimeters. A measurement of 25 inches is more precise than a measurement of 2 feet because an inch is a smaller unit than a foot. Similarly, 9.2 kilograms is more precise than 9 kilograms because a tenth of a kilogram is a smaller unit than a kilogram. Math On the Spot EXAMPLE 1 N.Q.3 Choose the more precise measurement in each pair. A 5.7 m; 568 cm B 5.7 m Nearest tenth of a meter 568 cm Nearest centimeter A centimeter is a smaller unit than a tenth of a meter, so 568 centimeters is the more precise measurement. 31 oz; oz 31 oz Nearest ounce oz Nearest hundredth of an ounce Animated Math A hundredth of an ounce is smaller than an ounce, so ounces is the more precise measurement. REFLECT 1. What if? Suppose that Example 1A asked you to choose the most precise measurement from among 5.7 m, m, and 568 cm. Now what would the answer be? Why? Lesson 1.1 7

Width of book cover: cm Measure the length of the book cover to the nearest tenth of a centimeter. B Length of book cover: A measurement given to the nearest whole unit can actually range from 0.5 unit below the reported value up to, but not including, 0.5 unit above it. So, a length reported as 3 cm could actually be as low as 2.5 cm or as high as nearly 3.5 cm, as shown in the diagram. Similarly, a length reported as 3.5 cm could actually be as low as 3.45 cm or as high as nearly 3.55 cm. Find a range of values for the actual length and width of the book cover. cm 0cm When measuring to the nearest centimeter, lengths in this range are rounded to 3 cm. C Minimum width = Maximum width < Minimum length = Maximum length < Calculate the minimum and maximum possible areas of the book cover. Round your answers to the nearest square centimeter. Minimum area = minimum width minimum length = Maximum area < maximum width maximum length < REFLECT 6. Give a range of possible values for a reported width of 21.0 cm. 8 Unit 1A

7 Significant Digits In the preceding Explore Activity, there was a wide range of possible values for the area of the book cover. This raises the question of how a calculated measurement, like an area, should be reported. Keeping track of significant digits is one way to resolve this dilemma. Significant digits are the digits in a measurement that carry meaning about the precision of the measurement. Math On the Spot Identifying Significant Digits Rule All nonzero digits are significant. Zeros between two other significant digits are significant. Zeros at the end of a number to the right of a decimal point are significant. Zeros to the left of the first nonzero digit in a decimal are not significant. Zeros at the end of a number without a decimal point are assumed to be not significant. Examples has 4 significant digits. 622 has 3 significant digits. 806 has 3 significant digits has 4 significant digits has 5 significant digits has 3 significant digits has 2 significant digits has 4 significant digits. 404,500 has 4 significant digits. 12,000,000 has 2 significant digits. Math Talk Mathematical Practices A student claimed that m and m have the same number of significant digits. Do you agree or disagree? Why? EXAMPLE 2 N.Q.3 Determine the number of significant digits in the measurement m. STEP 1 Find all nonzero digits. These are significant digits , 4, and 9 are nonzero digits. STEP 2 STEP 3 STEP 4 Find zeros after the last nonzero digit and to the right of the decimal point. These are significant digits Find zeros between the significant digits found in the previous steps. These are significant digits The zero after the 9 in the hundredths place is significant. There are 2 zeros between the significant digits 4 and 9. Count all the significant digits you have found All the digits in this number are significant. So, m has 6 significant digits. Lesson 1.1 9

Use the rules in this table to determine how many significant digits to include in the result of a calculation. Rules for Significant Digits in Calculations Operation Rule Addition or Subtraction Multiplication or Division The sum or difference must be rounded to the same place value as the last significant digit of the least precise measurement. The product or quotient must have no more significant digits than the least precise measurement. EXAMPLE 3 N.Q.3 A rectangular garden plot measures 16 feet by 23.6 feet. A Find the perimeter of the garden using the correct number of significant digits. B Perimeter = sum of side lengths = 16 ft + 16 ft ft ft = 79.2 ft The least precise measurement is 16 ft. Its last significant digit is in the ones place. So round the sum to the ones place: 79 ft. The perimeter is 79 feet. Find the area of the garden using the correct number of significant digits. Area = width length = 16 ft 23.6 ft = ft 2 The least precise measurement, 16 ft, has 2 significant digits, so round to a number containing 2 significant digits: 380 ft 2. The area is 380 ft Unit 1A

13 ? LESSON 1.2 Dimensional Analysis ESSENTIAL QUESTION How can you use dimensional analysis to convert measurements? N.Q.1 Use units as a way to understand problems and to guide the solution of multi-step problems; choose and interpret units consistently in formulas; choose and interpret the scale and the origin in graphs and data displays. Also N.Q.3 EXPLORE ACTIVITY N.Q.1 Exploring Measurement Conversions In the United States, the customary measurement system is used for everyday tasks such as finding the volume of a bottle or the length of a room. However, scientists throughout the world use the metric system of measurement. To convert between these two systems, you need to use equivalent measures such as those shown in the table. Metric and Customary Measurements Measurement Type Metric unit Customary equivalent Length 1 meter 3.28 ft 1 centimeter 0.39 in. Area 1 square meter ft 2 Volume 1 liter 0.26 gal Mass/Weight 1 kilogram 2.2 lb Use the equivalent measures given in the table to find the capacity of an 8-liter gas tank in gallons. 8 liters A B From the table: 1 liter (L) = gallons (gal) From the diagram, about how many liters are in 1 gallon? 1 L 1 gallon C D Will the number of gallons in an 8-liter gas tank be greater or less than 8? Explain. To convert 8 liters to gallons, do you need to multiply or divide by the conversion factor? 8 L = gal REFLECT 1. Analyze Relationships How would you convert from 8 gallons to liters? Lesson

14 Math On the Spot Converting Measurements Dimensional analysis is a way of using units to help solve problems involving measurements. You can use dimensional analysis to convert units by setting 12 in. up ratios of two equivalent measurements, such as. These ratios are called 1 ft conversion factors. EXAMPLE 1 N.Q.1 The body of a large adult male contains about 12 pints of blood. Use dimensional analysis to convert this quantity to liters. There are about 2.1 pints in a liter. Identify the given unit and the unit you need to find. Use that information to set up your conversion factor. The given unit should be in the denominator of the conversion factor, so that it will cancel out when multiplied by the given measurement. x liters 12 pt conversion factor 12 pt 1 1 liter 2.1 pt 12 liters liters The pints in the denominator cancel with pints in the numerator. The body of a large adult male contains approximately 5.7 liters of blood. REFLECT 2. Explain the Error Elena wanted to convert 30 inches to centimeters. She multiplied 30 in. by 1 in and got an answer of 12. What was her error? 2.5 cm YOUR TURN Use dimensional analysis to convert each measurement. Personal Math Trainer Online Practice and Help 3. 3 feet meters 4. 4 inches yards kg lb 6. 4 inches centimeters 16 Unit 1A

15 Converting Rates Sometimes you will need to convert not just one measurement, but a ratio of measurements. When working with a rate such as 50 miles per hour, you might need to know the rate in different units, such as meters per second. This requires two conversion factors: one to convert miles into meters, and one to convert hours into seconds. Math On the Spot EXAMPLE 2 N.Q.1, N.Q.3 A cyclist travels 105 kilometers in 4.2 hours. Use dimensional analysis to convert the cyclist s speed to miles per minute. Write your answer with the correct number of significant digits. Use 1 mi = 1.61 km. STEP 1 Identify the rate given and the rate you need to find. Use that information to set up your conversion factors. x miles minute 105 km conversion factor conversion factor 4.2 hr 105 km 4.2 hr 1 mi 1.61 km 1 hr 60 min 105 mi min mi/min Set up conversion factors so that both km and hr units cancel. My Notes STEP 2 Determine the number of significant digits in each value: the distance, the time, and both conversion factors: 105 km has 3 significant figures. 4.2 hours has 2 significant figures. 1 mi/1.61 km has 3 significant figures. 1 hr/60 min is an exact conversion factor. Significant figures do not apply here, or to any conversion within a measurement system. The value with the fewest significant digits is the time, 4.2 hr, with 2 significant digits. So the result should be rounded to 2 significant digits. The cyclist travels approximately 0.26 miles per minute. REFLECT 7. Communicate Mathematical Ideas Tell which of the following conversion factors are exact, and which are approximate: 1000 grams per kilogram, 0.26 gallon per liter, 12 inches per foot. Explain. Lesson

16 YOUR TURN Personal Math Trainer Online Practice and Help Use dimensional analysis to make each conversion. 8. A box of books has a mass of 4.10 kilograms for every meter of its height. Convert this ratio into pounds per foot. 9. A go-kart travels 21 miles per hour. Convert this speed into feet per minute. 10. A tortoise walks 52.0 feet per hour. Convert this speed into inches per minute. 11. A pitcher throws a base ball 90.0 miles per hour. Convert this speed into feet per second. Math On the Spot Converting Areas Dimensional analysis can also be used for converting areas. When converting areas, the conversion factor must be squared because area is expressed in square units. EXAMPLE 3 N.Q.1, N.Q.3 The area of a practice field is 45,100 ft 2. How large is the field in square meters? Write your answer with the correct number of significant digits. Use 1 m 3.28 ft. Math Talk Mathematical Practices When would you multiply by the cube of a conversion factor? Identify the given unit and the unit you need to find. Use that information to set up your conversion factor. x m 2 = 45,100 ft 2 45,100 ft 2 1 conversion factor ( 1 m 3.28 ft) 2 Square the conversion factor to convert square units. 2 45,100 ft 1 m 2 The ft 2 in the numerator cancel ft 2 the ft 2 in the denominator. 45,100 m m 2 45,100 ft 2 Because the given measure and the conversion factor both have 3 significant digits, the product should also be rounded to 3 significant digits. The area of the practice field is 4190 square meters. 18 Unit 1A
