    You 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
