They all are correct. LCB means Longitudinal Center of Buoyancy. This can be either an absolute value (in your case 5.796) or a relative value in percentages. In this case the location of the LCB relativly to the mid ship section is calculated as a percentage of the waterline length. It’s easy to check with the following formula:

LCB [%]=100 * (LCB [m]Midship location[m])/ LWL[m]
