Place Value Online Math Tutoring

It means that each digit within a number represents a value depending on its

position. For example, in the number 452, the digit 2 would represent 2 units,

the 5 would represent 5 tens (or 50) and the 4 would represent 4 hundreds

(400). Moving from right to left, each digit is 10 times larger, or from left to right

, each digit in 10 times smaller. This is also true for decimal numbers. In order

to work out which value represents what, we can use a place value chart.


 Example 1.Let’s use a place value chart to find out what all  the   numbers in 87 543 mean. To make it easier to put the  digits in   the right box, we can start by placing the unit in its  box first,       then moving left.

MillionsHundred ThousandsTen ThousandsThousandsHundredsTensUnits


The 8 represents 80 000

The 7 represents 7 000

The 5 represents 500

The 4 represents 40

The 3 represents 3



Example 2.Let’s try a slightly harder place value chart, with  a number that has decimals. The number we’ll use is 76.23.  After the units column, to the left we must put a tenths  column, then a hundredths column etc. You can draw a  decimal point between the boxes for units and tenths



The 7 represents 70

The 6 represents 6 units

The 2 represents 2 tenths or 0.2

The 3 represents 3 hundredths or 0.03
