    Three decimal places is the three numbers after the decimal point.

    Examples:

    0.54675 = 0.547
    0.41636 = 0.416

    It is not d/rt, but d = rt, translating into distance = rate times time. This may be your problem.

    .001 is three decimal places.

    If you don't know how to use a calculator, do calculations by hand.
