Lens help

I recently bought a Canon 550 D with the 18 - 55 Kit lens. After some online research I found that a newbie needs 3 lenses one of which is the kit lens. The other two are EF-S 55-250mm IS telephoto zoom, and the 50mm f/1.8.

While I understand that the 55 - 250 is to be used for zooming, I dont understand the purpose of the 50mm f 1.8.
So I request the members to help me on this.
If there is a doc which explains focal lengths, much better!
Thanks
