ANSWER Verified Verified
Hint: In a number, the first digit on the left side of decimal represents the ones and second digit represents the tens. Also the first digit on the right side of the decimal represents the tenths and the second digit represents the hundredths.

Complete step-by-step answer:
Given number is $18.25$
We can write the place value of each digit as:
\[18.25 = 1 \times 10 + 8 \times 1 + 2 \times \dfrac{1}{10} + 5 \times \dfrac{1}{{100}}\]
Here, $8$ is in the ones place and $1$ is in the tens place
Also $2$ is in the tenth place and $5$ is in the hundredth place.

Note: Every digit in the number has a place value which is represented by a digit in a number on the basis of its position right and left to the decimal point hence we wrote the given mathematical number in terms of their position. Therefore in the given number eight is in the ones place and one is in the tens place and two is in the tenth place and five is in the hundredth place.
