## To divide 1.3 by 73.814 and express the answer in significant digit notation with two significant digits, follow these steps:

Step 1: Perform the division:

1.3 ÷ 73.814 ≈ 0.017604492

Step 3: Round the result to the appropriate number of significant digits:

Since we are aiming for two significant digits in the quotient, we need to round the result to two significant digits.

To do this, we consider the third significant digit (4) and apply the rounding rule:

- If the third digit is 5 or greater, the second significant digit is increased by 1.

- If the third digit is less than 5, the second significant digit remains unchanged.

In this case, the third digit is 4, which is less than 5. Therefore, the second significant digit (1) remains unchanged.

Thus, the final result, in significant digit notation with two significant digits, is approximately 0.017.
