In Reply to: I rounded the first number and came up with 1609.344... posted by DiverD on April 13, 2005 at 00:16:58:

Rounding should be done in one step:

1609.34721869444 rounded to three decimal places is

1609.347, not 1609.344.

And some of the iterative roundings you did were wrong.

The first one is correct, but:

1609.3472187 rounded to five decimal places is 1609.34722, not 1609.34723.

1609.34723 rounded to three decimal places is 1609.347, not 1609.344.
