Decimal numbers such as 3.762 are used in situations which call for more precision than whole numbers provide.

That is not correct. 3.762 is not more precise than the whole number 3. The whole number or integer is exact and implies no error. 3.762 is more precise than the decimal 3.

When you do a calculation with integers such as 7 * 5 = 35, this is exact. (22 / 7 ) ( 67 / 6 ) = 35.095238 is not exact. It implies an error of ± .0000005
