Once you have those rounded numbers, how many significant digits will survive in the floating=point computations $x+y$, $x-y$, etc.? If you can't figure this out, go ahead and do the computations in 64 bits and see if you can explain the answers you get. | Once you have those rounded numbers, how many significant digits will survive in the floating=point computations $x+y$, $x-y$, etc.?
