    Depends on the instrument you are measuring with. But as a general rule:
    The degree of accuracy is half a unit each side of the unit of measure.

    A meter scale could be a stick like a yard stick or a steel bar. You need to give more specifics or just go with ma0641 because its should get you past this quiz.
