Place Value .


Place value 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.
