The numbers (1 and 2) are subscripts such as p1v1. The subscript numbers distiquish them from others of the same letter that are going to be used in the same equation. In this case there are probably 2 Pressure variables and 2 Volume variables. Since you want to use p and v for pressure and volume but there are pressures and volumes at let's say different gauges in the system then we have to distiguish the two. p1 = pressure read from gauge one and v2 is volume read from gauge 2. This, among others, is part of the energy equation for thermodynamics p1v1 = p2v2. The P is for pressure and the V is for Volume.

Pressure and volume at two different conditions.
