    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice is intended to assist in the use of uniform methods of indicating the number of digits that are to be considered significant and rounding for intermediate calculations when reporting geotechnical test results.

    1.2 This practice uses a variation of the traditional rounding method (see Practice E 29) that recognizes the algorithm common to most hand-held calculators.
