According to the last maths books I read general decimals >= 5 are rounded

I assume this means this is a bug.

No, it's a problem in your typing or arithmetic

275 + 275/8 = 309.375

As I said, when rounded a human might expect to get 309.38 to 2 d.p.

You seem to be insisting that the answer is 309.75 or 309.76 which is
non-sensical, I can't do much with a bug report like that.
