If the uncertainty in each number is 1, what is the percent uncertainty in each? (Give your answer to 3 significant figures.)

99____%

100____%

Hi there! Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

If we have the number 99 with an uncertainty of 1, then the percent uncertainty is the ratio 1/99, which in this case equals 0.0101, or 1.01%

If we have the number 100 with an uncertainty of 1, then the percent uncertainty is the ratio 1/100, which equals 0.01, or 1.00%

Thank you for your answer
