Hint: See at which place is number two and you will get the place value.
In math, every digit in a number has a place value.

Place value can be defined as the value represented by a digit in a number on the basis of its
 position in the number. Each digit has a fixed position called its place.
 Each digit has a value depending on its place called the place value of the digit. The face
 value of a digit for any place in the given number is the value of the digit itself

In our decimal number system, the value of a digit depends on its place, or position, in the
 number. Each place has a value of 10 times the place to its right.
A number in standard form is separated into groups of three digits using commas. Each of
 these groups is called a period
The place values are determined by how many places the digit lies to the right or the left of
 the decimal point.
The place values to the left of the decimal point are increasing powers of $10$.
The first place to the left of the decimal point is the ones place, or ${{10}^{0}}$.
The second place to the left of the decimal is the tens place, or ${{10}^{1}}$.
The third place to the left of the decimal is the hundreds place, or ${{10}^{2}}$.
 Place value of a digit = (face value of the digit) × (value of the place)
So the place value of $10.25$ is,


So we can see that $2$ is in Tenth’s place.

Note: Some facts about the place value,
1.The place value of every one-digit number is the same as and equal to its face value.
2.In a two-digit number, the place value of the ten-place digit is 10 times of the digit.
3. Now it is the general law that the digit possesses its place value as the product of the digit
 and place value of one to be at that position.
