    Because you only have one decimal place unless you've typed it out wrong?

    Technically the answer should be 946.40 But there are an infinite amount of possibilities between 946.35 and up to 946.40

    Yes, rounding to 2 decimal places looks like this 1.1649 gives 1.17 so anything >= 5 is rounded up into the next decimal. In the example the 9 causes the 4 to round to 5 which causes the 6 to round to 7 Does that explain the process?
