[SOLVED] lsblk and df -h inconsistencies

I was having trouble installing a large package the other day and I couldn't figure out what was going on. I went ahead and ran df -h to check if I had space left and it said my root partition only had 55G available and was 275G in Size which is weird because when I installed the drive I was certain I partitioned it to be 900G. 
this is my output when I run the two commands:

$ lsblk
NAME   MAJ:MIN RM   SIZE RO TYPE MOUNTPOINT
sda      8:0    0 931.5G  0 disk 
├─sda1   8:1    0   1.9G  0 part /boot/efi
├─sda2   8:2    0     1K  0 part 
├─sda3   8:3    0 899.9G  0 part /
└─sda5   8:5    0  29.8G  0 part [SWAP]
sr0     11:0    1  1024M  0 rom  
$ df -h
Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
dev             3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /dev
run             3.9G  1.1M  3.9G   1% /run
/dev/sda3       275G  206G   55G  80% /
tmpfs           3.9G   18M  3.9G   1% /dev/shm
tmpfs           3.9G     0  3.9G   0% /sys/fs/cgroup
tmpfs           3.9G   56K  3.9G   1% /tmp
/dev/sda1       1.9G  380K  1.9G   1% /boot/efi
tmpfs           789M   16K  789M   1% /run/user/120
tmpfs           789M   20K  789M   1% /run/user/1000

I can't figure out what happened to the rest of the partition and I'm trying to figure out a way on getting it all back.

Re: [SOLVED] lsblk and df -h inconsistencies

Did you expand it at some point? This can happen if your filesystem doesn't span the entire partition. If you use ext4 you can resize it to partition size with resize2fs most other file systems will have a similar tool

No I didn't do anything manual to it. When I created the partition I created it as an extended partition. But your solution seemed to work. I don't know how it happened in the first place, but I appreciate the help.
