LVM/Filesystem Question

I'm trying to figure out why the free space differs from when I look at the disks app to when I look at the files app. I'm relatively new to linux and I tried reading a tutorial on LVM but I couldn't figure this one out. Does anyone know why free space differs in these two contexts?

LVM/Filesystem Question

EDIT 1: I understand the difference between GB and GiB. But even if I convert 17 GiB to GB, it comes out to about 18 GB, not 29 GB. This is why I'm getting confused when I look at the files app. I'm trying to figure out where the files app is getting that extra 10+ GB from.

EDIT 2: After doing some research, I found that all of the sda2 device is full. This should not be the case. I haven't used up that much storage on my device. I've used up about 9 GB and sda2 is 20 GB. It's saying that I used up all of sda2 and most of sda3. These devices are both parents for my lvm. So now the question is, what's taking up so much storage and why isn't it being shown?

UPDATE-SOLVED: Plain and simple, I was being really stupid and I forgot to expand the file system after I added another partition.
