Ebenezer didn't really show you how to round. He just answered the question for you, which doesn't usually help much. Maybe I can help.
In order to know whether to round the second decimal place up or down, we need to look at the third decimal place. If it is 5 or greater, we change the second decimal place to the next higher number. Otherwise we just keep the number the same. Make sense? Hope this helped!

There is another rounding method to complicate your life.  Look at the third place, if it is more than five round up the second place, if less than five leave second place alone.  If the third place is equal to 5 and the second place is odd round it up, if the second plkace is even, leave it as is.
e.g. 2.755  to  2.76
      2.745  to  2.74
