The thousands place is the digit 4 left of the decimal point; in a whole number the decimal point is "hiding" after the ones digit. In 26195 the thousands digit is 6.

It is expressing a number in decimal form: that is, a form in which the place value of each digit is one tenth the place value of the digit to its left.

The tens place value is the second digit to the left of the decimal point. The decimal point is always to the right of the ones digit; in a whole number, the decimal point is "hiding" (not written) after the ones digit. In 3040 the tens digit is the 4.

The thousandths place is the third digit after the decimal point. 86.255 only has 3 digits after the decimal point so it is already (possibly) rounded to the nearest thousandth.

A decimal number is simply a way of representing a number in such a way that the place value of each digit is ten times that of the digit to its right. If it does not contain a fractional part then the decimal representation does not require a decimal point.
