# A boy is playing with few balls with his elder brother.

# These balls have some numbers written on them.

# The boy picks a ball with digit $5$ written on it.

# Also, his brother picks another ball with digit $7$ written on it.

# They kept both the balls together. It formed a 2-digit number as

# The elder brother said that let him tell him something very interesting about the positions of the number.

# The boy got curious just like you guys, so let us study about what he told.

# Letâ€™s discuss the place values of the numbers.

# Let us consider a $3$ digit number as

# Now, we can expand this number as shown

# We can conclude that, $8$ is the ones place, $7$ is at the tens place and $2$ is the hundreds place.

# Similarly, if we consider a four digit number

# We can say that $5$ is at thousands place

# We can aso write a $5$ digit number and expansion of that number as

# Here, we can read it as forty five thousand two hundred seventy eight

# The table above gives the place value of each digit as we go from right to left

# The place value of any 5 digit number can be given as
