I haven't learned this at school...
8.4345 is smaller than 8.435 hence should be written, with two decimals, 
as 8.43.
8.94345 is smaller than 8.9435 hence should be written, with three 
decimals, as 8.943.

PS: (I think what you seem to apply is that the 5 brings one up which 
brings the next up etc... I don't think that this is valid)
