5 written in one’s place stand for                                          5

5 written in ten’s place stand for                                          50 (5 tens)

5 written in hundred’s place stand for                                   500 (5 hundreds)

6 written in one’s place stand for                                          6

6 written in ten’s place stand for                                          60 (6 tens)

6 written in hundred’s place stand for                                   600 (6 hundreds)

7 written in one’s place stand for                                          7

7 written in ten’s place stand for                                          70 (7 tens)

7 written in hundred’s place stand for                                  700 (7 hundreds)

8 written in one’s place stand for                                         8

8 written in ten’s place stand for                                          80 (8 tens)

8 written in hundred’s place stand for                                   800 (8 hundreds)

9 written in one’s place stand for                                          9

9 written in ten’s place stand for                                          90 (9 tens)

9 written in hundred’s place stand for                                   900 (9 hundreds)


Now to write the place values in words and numbers, such as 45, we see the number has two digits.  Each digit is a different place value. 

The first digit i.e. 4 is called the tens' place. Here, there are 4 tens.

The last or right digit i.e. 5 is called the ones' place. 

Therefore, in the number 45 = 4 tens plus 5 ones = 40 + 5 = 45.
