what's the trouble? Just start working in the clues. The number is

2.abcdefg...
c = a+b
b = c-a (well, duh)
b = c-1
It appears that the number is just
2.abc
c = a+c-1
a = 2c+1
Now, since a < 10, c < 5
So, if a = 0,1,2,3,4
then c = 1,3,5,7,9
and b = 1,2,3,4,5

So, we could have

2.011
2.123
2.235
2.347
2.459

If you don't want to allow repeated digits, then the only choices are

2.347
2.459

Most of Steve's answers do not fit the requirement of "The digit in my hundreths place is one less than the digit in my thousansths place."
