2048x1152 is a very uncommon resolution

All resolutions other than 1024x768, 1366x768 and 1920x1080 can be said to be "uncommon". However, a resolution sported by more than one monitor by more than one maker should have no problems being counted alongside 1600x1200, 1280x1024 and the rest at the very least.

Still very uncommon.

and still not a 2.4MP monitor.

Yes, it is; do read the Wikipedia article on "significant digits".

No, simple math says otherwise.

As I said, there is no such a thing as a 2.4MP monitor.

See above.

The math says otherwise,

Photography, and the related hardware, is a technical field besides an artistic one. People need to be corrected when using terms that are obviously incorrect.

Exactly. So go read that article, because the notion of signfiicant digits is damn important in Physics and the other physical sciences, where rounding 2.36 down to 2.3 as you're doing now is considered a very grave mistake.

??? Where I'd I round anything? The only people that are taking license to round things off are those claiming there is such a thing as a 2.4 MP monitor.
