If Martin finished the race 0.267 second after Kim, you would need to add 0.267 to 50.9 to solve the problem. How is adding 0.267 to 50.9 different from adding 0.26 to 50.9?

Please Help

I assume that Kim finished in 50.9 seconds.

Since Martin finished the race .267 seconds after, Martin finished in .267 + 50.9.

How is adding 0.267 to 50.9 different from adding 0.26 to 50.9?

.267 + 50.9 = 51.167

.26 + 50.9 = 51.16

I think the first one is the specific number, but the second is a rounded version.
