Finding and Writing the Place Value

What are the methods of finding and writing the place value of any numbers?

The methods of finding and writing the place value of any numbers are explained here with different examples.

Consider the numbers given in numerals. We have to find and write the place values of its digits. In a number each digit has a different place values.

1. In the number 2965:

(i) There is the digit 2 in the number 2965. This 2 is the fourth digit for the right in the number. It is at thousand’s place. So, its place value is 2000.

We write 2 and put three zeros to its right as 2000. After 2, there are three digits in the number towards right of the Thousand-place.

(ii) There is the digit 9 in the 2965. This 9 is at hundred’s place. This 9 is the third from right in the number. There are two digits towards right in the number.

We write 9 and put two zeroes to its right. So, the place value of 9 in the number is 900.

(iii) There is the digit 6 in the number 2965 at ten’s place. This 6 is second from right in the number. There is one digit more to its right on the number

We write 6 and put one zero to its right. So, the place value of 6 in the number is 60.

(iv) In the extreme right there is the digit 5 at one’s place in the number 2965. So, its place value is 5.

In short the above process is shown as:

Finding and Writing the Place Value

According to the place values, the number is 2 thousand 9 hundred 6 ten and 5 one.


2. In the number 9721:

(i) There is the digit 9 in the number 9721. This 9 is the fourth digit for the right in the number. It is at thousand’s place. So, its place value is 9000.

We write 9 and put three zeros to its right as 9000. After 9, there are three digits in the number towards right of the Thousand-place.

(ii) There is the digit 7 in the 9721. This 7 is at hundred’s place. This 7 is the third from right in the number. There are two digits towards right in the number.

We write 7 and put two zeroes to its right. So, the place value of 7 in the number is 700.

(iii) There is the digit 2 in the number 9721 at ten’s place. This 2 is second from right in the number. There is one digit more to its right on the number.

We write 2 and put one zero to its right. So, the place value of 2 in the number is 20.

(iv) In the extreme right there is the digit 1 at one’s place in the number 9721. So, its place value is 1.

In short the above process is shown as:

Place Value of any Number

According to the place values, the number is 9 thousand 7 hundred 2 ten and 1 unit.
