[li]These are the number of figures after the decimal points.[/li]
[/ul]
For example:
3.75434 = 3.75 (2 decimal place or DP)
This is because each single digit after the decimal point is a decimal place.
So 2 would be 2 numbers after the decimal place.
However if the example is:
3.756 to 2DP.
The answer is 3.76.
This is because the final decimal place has to be rounded up or down.

[li]3.752 = 3.8 (1 dp)[/li]
[li]3.7502 = 3.750 (3 dp)[/li]
[li]0.0757 = 0.08 (2 dp)[/li]
[li]0.0757 = 0.1 (1 dp)[/li]
[li]4.98 = 5 (nearest whole interger)[/li]
[li]4.98 = 5 (1 dp)[/li]
[li]197 [divide] 7 = 25.6 (1 dp)[/li]
[li]2.78 [divide] 3 = 0.927 (3 dp)[/li]
[li]0.0514 [divide] 0.09 = 0.5711 (4 dp)[/li]
