If you round a number to the nearest thousandths, it will have three decimal places. In 22.98553, the number right after the thousandths place is 5, so the thousandths place rounds up to 6. So, the answer is 22.986.

The first number to the right of the decimal (in this case, 9), is the tenths place, then the hundredths, then the thousandths, and so on.

When rounding numbers, if the first number to the right of the place you want is greater than or equal to 5, add one to the place you want and make everything to the right zero; if it's less than five, don't change it, and change everything to the right to zero.
