Best Answer

Explanation

  • Let us round off 2.745 to 3 significant figures.
  • If the preceding digit is even and the digit to be eliminated is 5, the preceding digit is kept untouched.
  • As a result, rounding off 2.745  yields2.74.
  • Consider2.737; the digit to be eliminated is 5, and if the preceding digit is odd, it is increased by one.
  • As a result, rounding off 2.734 to three significant digits yields 2.74.
