Thirty six thousand, four hundred thirty two

(iii) 40219

Forty thousand, two hundred nineteen

(iv) 51708

Ones, tens, hundreds which belong to the ONES period.

Thousand, ten thousand which belong to the THOUSANDS period.

To read and write a large number like 6 digit, 7 digit numerals.

In the place value chart, the sixth place is that of hundred thousands and the seventh place is of millions.
