Light Meter question.......

I guess i am probably being dumb but i have just gotten a sekonic L308s. Its great and very helpful BUT. If for example it gives 5.6 as the aperture it will sometimes say 5.6.8

What and how do you set the camera to 5.6.8? I have 20D. I for some reason cant figure out how it can be set to (5.6).8?

Probably a dumb question but its bothering me. Can anyone shed some light?

Thanks in advance
