round off to two significant figures  the number is 3.755

Solution

In rounding significant figures, when an integer contains more digits than are significant, the last significant digit has an overline to indicate that it is the last significant digit.

When rounding significant figures the standard rules of rounding numbers apply, except that non-significant digits to the left of the decimal are replaced with zeros.

Rounds down if the next digit is less than 5 and rounds up when the next digit is greater than or equal to 5.


3.755 contains 4 significant figures and 3 decimals.
3.755 rounded to 3 significant figures is 3.76, to 2 significant figures is 3.8, and to 1 significant figure is 4.
