The '9' is in the "first decimal" place and the '3' is in the "second decimal" place.

If the number in the second decimal place is 4 or less then the number in the first decimal place is left unchanged. As the problem in this case is…
Anything to one decimal place has a precision of one decimal place. For instance, 1234 to one decimal place is 1000, and 5678 to one decimal place is 6000. If you are talking fractional examples, then 0.1234 to one decimal place is 0.1 and 0.5678 to one decimal place is 0.6. Similarly, 0.001234 is 0.001, and 0.005678 is 0.006.
