The thousandth's place is the place value at the third digit after the decimal point. Here, the thousandth's place is occupied by $\boxed{7}$ .

**
Note:
**
The above number can be expressed as follows:
$1 \times 10^3 + 2 \times 10^2 + 3 \times 10^1 + 4 \times 10^0 + 5 \times 10^{-1} + 6 \times 10^{-2} + 7 \times 10^{-3} + 8 \times 10^{-4} + 9 \times 10^{-5}$
. The digit multiplied with
$10^{-3}$
is the digit at thousandth's place.

A decimal is a fractional number and is indicated by digits after a period which is called a decimal point.

Tenths have one digit after the decimal point. The decimal 0.8 is pronounced "eight tenths" or "zero point eight". It is equal to the fraction 8/10.

Hundredths have two digits after the decimal point. The decimal 0.36 is pronounced "thirty-six hundredths" or "zero point thirty-six". It is equal to the fraction 36/100.

Thousandths follow a similar pattern. They have three digits after the decimal point. The decimal 0.749 is pronounced "seven hundred forty-nine thousandths" or "zero point seven forty-nine".

There may be zeros after the decimal point. The decimal 0.064 is pronounced "sixty-four thousandths" or "zero point zero sixty-four".

Also, thousands is referring to the numbers on the left of the decimal point, while thousand

is referring to the numbers on the right of the decimal point. Don't get confused and do this simple mistake! You should read the question carefully to make sure you know which number the question is actually referring to.

The first digit to the right of the decimal point is in the tenths place. Thus, the second digit to the right of the decimal point is in the hundredths place, and the third digit to the right of the decimal point is in the thousandths place.

The third digit to the right of the decimal point (thousandths place) is 7.

1 is the "thousand" place, 2 is the "hundred" place, 3 is the "ten" place and 4 is the "one" place. The 5 is the "tenth" place, the 6 is the "hundreth" place, and the 7 is the "thousandth" place.

I think levels are decided by how many people could actually solve it. And I think many people misunderstood the concepts, or maybe gave the answer wrong. I think that's why it got into level 3! I am just saying that, I don't have any idea about it!
