# A student measure the thickness of an object by three different instruments and gets the result as 0.5 cm, 0.50 cm, 0.500 cm. State the one which is more accurate.

$0.500$ cm

##### SOLUTION
Since, the measurement $0.500 \ cm$ gives the reading up to 3 decimel, thus $0.500 \ cm$ is the most accurate measurement among the given three measurements.
