The number above has 6 significant figures since zero in between is significant and zero on a decimal number is significant.

45.0380 has 6 significant digits. When you are looking at zeros after the decimal place, any zeros AFTER a non-zero digit decimal place are significant. For example, 0.0035 has 2 SD, but 0.00350 has 3 SD.
