221.57

#### Explanation:

To round to the nearest tenth you would would look at the hundredths place. If it is higher than 5 you round the number in the tenth place up if it is lower than 5 you keep it the number in the tenth place the same. In this case you have 2 which is lower than 5 so you keep the 7 the same and bring everything else down.
