There's 2 issues here:
you haven't defined the decimal with any precision, so by default is defined as decimal(18,0). When you asign 2.2875 to it, it essentially rounds it, giving 2
the second parameter of the round function is the number of decimal places to round to.
so your code needs to be
declare @d decimal (8,2) --for example
