**DrBob222**, Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 7:49pmYou don't seem to understand what is the tenths place, the hundredths place. etc.

On the left side of the decimal,

1 is the units place.

10 the 1 is in the tens place.

100 the 1 is in the hundreds place.

On the right side of the decimal,

0.1, the 1 is the tenths place.

0.01, the 1 is in the hundredths place.

0.001, the 1 is in the thousandths place.

So in the number 0.551, a five is in the tenths place, the next 5 is in the hundredths place, and the 1 is in the thousandths place. Therefore, to round to the hundredth, that means the second 5. So we look at the next number to the right, it is a 1, the 1 is less than 5 so it is dropped, and the answer is 0.55
