Ethyl and methyl are the substituents of the Amine so that's when you know to plug in the instead of the numbers

Also, unlike other structure, where a number is placed in front of the substituent to indicate where it is on the carbon chain, "N" is placed in front of the substituent because that is where they start/connected to.
