I need help with a specific term used in financial systems. I need to tell the
user to enter a number is a specific format - and I know there is a term for
this type of format. Here is an example:

Enter the Consumer Price Index (CPI) number with a significance of 2, i.e.

Enter the % of Sales with a significance of 2, i.e. 5.75.

Does anybody know what the proper terminology would be? I don't think the
average user would necessarily understand the way I have worded it. Any
financial experts out there?
