>Hmm. I'm 41, learned to use a slide rule in high school, and learned "5 or

Me too, on all three items :-).
However, when I got to chemistry class the teacher took extra care to teach

Found this nice web tutorial on significant figures and rounding by, Stephen
L. Morgan, Professor, Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry, The University
of South Carolina.
