The first name of the column is the biggest place value. So if there are two columns you would know it would be (from left to right) tens and ones. If there were four columns then you would know it would be (from left to right) thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones.

I'm sorry if that was a bit confusing to process, but I hope that helps
