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 written on it.
Also, his brother picks another ball with digit 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.
Let’s discuss the place values of the numbers.
Let us consider a digit number as
Now, we can expand this number as shown
We can conclude that, is the ones place, is at the tens place and is the hundreds place.
Similarly, if we consider a four digit number
We can say that is at thousands place
We can aso write a 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
