When we say the phrase ‘decimal place’ (dp) we are looking at the digits that appears in the place value chart after the decimal point.
if we are looking at ‘2 decimal places’ this means decimals that appear in the ‘tenths’ and the ‘hundredths’ columns.
Example: 4.50 , 3.25 , 6.78 – These are all decimals up to 2dp as they have a tenths and hundredths column.
