Significant figures are a way of showing the precision of a number or group of numbers. Significant figures are important because they tell us how good the data we are using are. Significant figures are critical when reporting scientific data because they give the reader an idea of how well you could actually measure/report your data. In science, the more significant figures the more accurate the data will be.
