.50 is 50 hundredths.
.005 is .5 hundredths
5 hundredths is .05
Digits have "place value" to the right of the decimal point as well as to the left of it. .1 is 1/10, .01 is 1/100, .001 is 1/1000 and so on. In scientific notation, these are 10^-1, 10^-2, and 10^-3 respectively, the exponent getting more negative the further you go to the right of the decimal point.

With decimals it goes 'ones'-0.0 'tens'-0.00 'hundredths'-0.000 so 0.005 is your answer
