Answer:

4.

Explanation:

The numbers to the right of the decimal are significant. The only reason to write the zero to the right of the decimal is that this has been measured. The zero to the right of the eight has no mathematical value.

Count there are four digits to the right of the decimal so there are four significant digits.
