# The mathematical operation in which the accuracy is limited to least accurate term is :

both A and B

##### SOLUTION
In addition or subtraction we can reduce the terms to least accurate term and add or subtract them. By this process in addition or subtraction answer is not much get affected or change in answer is negligible.
But if we apply this process in multiplication and division, change in answer is considerable.
Hence in addition and subtraction accuracy is limited to least accurate term.

You're just one step away
