When we write a number as a sum of place value of its digits, the number is said to be in expended form and when we write a number using digits, the number is said to be in short form. There are 3 ways to write the expanded form. There are 3 ways to write the expanded form for a given number.

Examples on Expanded Form and Short Form of a Number:

hundreds + 5 tens + 7 ones

2^{nd} way: 4 × 10000 + 3 × 1000 + 2 × 100 + 5 × 10
+ 7 × 1

3^{rd} way: 40000 + 3000 + 200 + 50 + 7

**2.** Write the expanded form for 14,080.

**Solution:**
