### Show Answer

$$\text{Zero Error }=-0.03 \text{cm}$$

Correct Reading:

$$0.06 \text{cm}-(-0.03 \text{cm}) = 0.09 \text{cm}$$

### Show Answer

$$\text{Zero Error }=+0.03 \text{cm}$$

Correct Reading:

$$1.06 \text{cm}-(+0.03 \text{cm}) = 1.03 \text{cm}$$

### Show Answer

$$\text{Zero Error }=-0.06 \text{cm}$$

Correct Reading:

$$6.43 \text{cm}-(-0.06 \text{cm}) = 6.49 \text{cm}$$
