Place value Exerice
Place value is a way to write numbers that helps us understand their value. It’s like having a secret code for numbers!
When we write a number, we use different positions for each digit to show how much it is worth. These positions are called place values.
For example, let’s look at the number 26. In this number, the digit 2 is in the tens place, and the digit 6 is in the ones place. This means that the number 26 can be read as “2 tens and 6 ones”.
When we use place value, we know that the digit in the tens place is worth 10 times more than the digit in the ones place. So in the number 26, the digit 2 in the tens place represents 2 groups of 10, or 20, and the digit 6 in the ones place represents 6 ones.
We can also use place value to write larger numbers. For example, let’s look at the number 3,581. In this number, the digit 3 is in the thousands place, the digit 5 is in the hundreds place, the digit 8 is in the tens place, and the digit 1 is in the ones place. This means that the number 3,581 can be read as “3 thousands, 5 hundreds, 8 tens, and 1 one”.
By understanding place value, we can add and subtract numbers easily, compare the value of different numbers, and even multiply and divide numbers. It’s a really important concept in math that we use all the time!
