# The proper value of significant figures in $38.0+ 0.0035 + 0.00003$ is:

38.0

##### SOLUTION
The value of the sum   $38.0+0.0035+0.00003 = 38.00353$
Since the digit has  $38.0$ has only  $1$ significant figure after the decimal, so the final answer must also have $1$ significant figure after the decimal.
So, the proper value of the sum is  $38.0$
