When dividing several quantities, the number of significant digits in the result must always
be
[Allarger than the number of significant digits in the most accurate of the quantities
[B] equal to the number of significant digits in the most accurate of the quantities
[OJ equal
to the average number of significant digits in the most and least accurate of the
quantities
(@pequal to the number of significant digits in the least accurate of the quantities
[E]
smaller than the number of significant digits in the least accurate of the quantities
