4 to the right of the decimal point.

17 being a whole number lies to the left of the point. To turn it into thousandths you have to move it to the right, three places. One is 1.7, 2 is 0.17, 3 is 0.017, The thousandths POSITION is 0.001. So 17 thousandths does not lie more than two places to the right of that. It does lie more than two places to the right of the decimal point. Don't mix up these. There is no such thing as the "thousandths decimal point".

I know because 17 thousandths is 3 places after the decimal.

Because 17 thousandths is three places to the right of the decimal and well, 3 is more than 2.
