The first digit is the ten thousands' place, which is 1 in this example.
The second digit is the one thousands' place, which is 2 in this example.
The third digit is called the hundreds' place, which is 3 in this example.
The next digit is the tens' place, which is 4 in this example.
The last or right digit is the ones' place which is 5 in this example.
