Place Value and Face Value

FACE VALUE AND PLACE VALUE OF A DIGIT IN A NUMERAL

Face Value: The face value of a digit in a numeral is the actual value of a digit at whatever place it may be.

Place Value: The place value of a digit in a numeral depends on the position it occupies in a numeral.


Let us consider the numeral 675:

Arrange the digits of 675 in the place value chart as shown below:


H

T

O

6

7

5


From the place value chart, we have:

The place value of 6 = 6 hundreds

                              = 600;                the face value of 6 = 6,


The place value of 7  = 7 tens

                               = 70;                 the face value of 7 = 7,


The place value of 5  = 5 ones

                               = 5;                   the face value of 5 = 5.

Note:

The place value of 0 is always zero, irrespective of its place in the numeral. For example, the place value of 0 in 609 and 805 is 0 in each case.


Let us look at the digits 1 and 2.

The digit 1 represents one object

Place Value and Face Value

The digit 2 represents two objects

Place Value and Face Value

We know that digit 2 is greater than the digit 1 or 2 > 1.

With the digits 1 and 2 we can make the numbers 12 and 21.

Face Value

Face value is the value of a digit in a number.

So, the digit 1 has the same face value in both the numbers `12 and 21.

 Similarly, the digit 2 has the same face value in the numbers 12 and 21.

Therefore, the face value of a digit always remains the same. 

We write 12 and 21 by using ones and tens as:

Place Value of a Number

In the number 12, the value of 2 (i.e., 2 ones) is less than the value of 1 (i.e., 1 ten)

In the number 21, the value of 2 (i.e., 2 tens) is greater than the value of 1 (i.e., 1 one)

In both the numbers 12 and 21 there value is different this is because of its place value.

Place value of a digit is the value of a digit because of its place in a number.


Similarly, the digit 3 and 7 can be used to make the number 37 and 73.

        8                                  8 ones or 8

        8                                  8 tens or 80

        1                                  1 one or 1

Face Value and Place Value of the Digits



Learn the easiest way to understand the basic concept on place value and face value in the second grade.

Suppose we write a number in figures 435 in words we write four hundred thirty five.

Thus,  

    435 means   4 hundreds   3 tens   and   5 ones  =   400   +   30   +   5

We write the expanded form of the numbers as 435 =   400  +   30  +   5

Hence, in the number 435, the place value of 4, 3 and 5 are 400, 30 and 5 respectively.

In place value and face value let us first understand the concept of place value of the concerned digits by following the examples.

(i) 350 means:  3 hundreds   5 tens  and  0 ones  =  300   +   50   +   0

                                                                350    =  300   +   50   +   0

In the number 350, the place value of 3, 5 and 0 are 300, 50 and 0 respectively.


(ii) 602 means:  6 hundreds  0 tens  and  2 ones =  600   +    00   +    2

                                                             602      =  600    +   00   +    2

In the number 602, the place value of 6, 0 and 2 are 600, 00 and 2 respectively.


(iii) 278 means:

   2 hundreds   7 tens  and   8 ones   =   200   +   70    +    8

                                             278    =   200   +   70    +    8

In the number 278, the place value of 2, 7 and 8 are 200, 70 and 8 respectively.


(iv) 777 means:  7 hundreds 7 tens  and 7 ones  =  700   +  70     +   7

                                                             777      =  700   +  70     +   7

In the number 777, the place value of 7, 7 and 7 are 700, 70 and 7 respectively.


(v) 63 means: 0 hundreds  6 tens  and  3 ones    =   000   +   60   +    3

                                                              63       =   000   +   60   +    3

In the number 63, the place value of 0, 6 and 3 are 000, 60 and 3 respectively.

Therefore, the place value of a digit in a number is the value of the place which it has in the number.

In the number 549, the place value of 5 is 500, of 4 is 40 and 9 is 9 as 5 occupies the place of hundreds, 4 occupies the place of tens and 9 occupies the place of ones or unit in the given number 549.

We know the digit in a number occupy the place of ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, etc. from extreme right to left and have the value of that place.

The original value of a digit is called its face value.


In the number 385 the place value of 3 is 300 and its face value is 3,

                              the place value of 8 is 80 and its face value is 8,

                              the place value of 5 is 5 and its face value is 5.

Therefore, in any number its important to know the place value and face value of a concerned digit.
