Because the place value means, where the digit is located with respect to a decimal point.

1 is always 1, but if you place 1 in the tens place value, then the value of that 1 is 10.

In the hundreds place value, the value of that 1 is 100.

In the hundredths place value, then the value of that 1 is .01.
