You've rounded it to the nearest tenth.
Check this site for information about rounding decimals.

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
what is greater5.7 or 5.69
