Such as

-1.85714286

to correct it to six decimal places would that mean

-1.857143?

or

-1.9

-1.857143 is correct. Means to round it off six numerals after the decimal place.

when they as for something to x decimal places then it means you need to have x number of digits after the decimal point and round the last one. so your first answer is correct. ^_^

Your first answer is correct. 6 decimal places is the number of digits to the right of the decimal point.

Your 6th decimal place is the 8, thus the 6 will turn it into a 9.

yeah, it is .6004 since the 6th place is 9 and is more than 4 then you should add 1 (you may add 1 if the is between 5&9 meaning if it is 5,6,7,8,9 you may add 1 to the next number in it.) you don’t have to include the “00” for it is still 0.:-)
