    effect of rounding in multi stage problems

    Hi
    I am trying to work out some sort of methodology for rounding errors in different mathematical problems. I notices that if you round to 1dp compared to 7dp the final answer can be different by 2 or so percent depending on the situation. Is there any information on this?

    Regards,
