Here's another example, in case you're having trouble.

Say your object travels 4.005 meters in 3.45678 seconds. In this case, your least precise measurement is 4.005 meters (it has 4 significant figures, compared to the 6 significant figures of 3.45678.) So your answer will have (4+1) = 5 significant figures:

4.005 / 3.45678 = 1.1586
