No. -3.5 is one decimal. There is ONE digit tot he right of the decimal point, therefore ONE decimal. And she said -3.515, not -3.565.
Yes you are right I had a long day and English is not my first language, so I mixed some things up. However about writing -3.565 was me making an example of rounding upwards which was pretty clear when I wrote "So if it was...". One more digit than I wrote and using the same method and it would be correct.
-3.52, I mean. But the rest of my post applies.
Actually, in UK, we call it DECIMAL PLACES. It means there are two digits to the RIGHT of the decimal point for your example of 2 decimal places.
We call it that here in the US too.
@kespethdude I guess it is pretty universal! 😊
Yes - decimal places here too

You got a point. But the asker is alledgedly in her 30s but asking an elementary school level math question? smh indeed.
@kespethdude She's "allegedly" 32 years of age!!
Yes, I know lol. Thanks for the correction of my typo. I think your point was that too many people are asking inane questions like this. I answered her correctly to humor her.
