Place Value and Face Value

The place value of a digit in a number is the value it holds to be at the place in the number. We know about the place value and face value of a digit and we will learn about it in details.

We know that each digit in a number has a place. The place that a digit occupies in a number tells us about its place value.

Let us take a 3-digit number 915

Place Value and Face Value of a Digit




915 = 9 hundreds 1 ten and 5 ones. We note that the digit 9 in the number 915 is at hundreds place.

So, the place value of digit 9 is 9 hundred or 900.

The place value of digit 1 is 1 ten or 10.

The place value of digit 5 is 5 ones or 5.


Place, Place Value and Face Value: 

A number is formed by grouping the digits together. 

● Each digit has a fixed position called its place. 

● Each digit has a value depending on its place called the place value of the digit. 

● The face value of a digit for any place in the given number is the value of the digit itself 

● Place value of a digit = (face value of the digit) × (value of the place) 


We know that each digit in a number has a place value. The place a digit occupies in a number tells us its place value. So, the product of the digit and the value of the place it occupies gives us the place value. Let us arrange the digits of the number 5, 32,161 in the following place value chart.

Place Value Table

The face value of a digit in a number is the digit itself.

Properties of Place Value:

1. The place value of every one-digit number is the same as and equal to its face value. 

(i) Place value and face value of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 respectively.

(ii) The place value of zero (0) is always 0. It may hold any place in a number, its value is always 0.

As, in 105, 350, 42017, 90218 the place value of 0 in each number is 0.


2. In a two-digit number, the place value of the ten-place digit is 10 times of the digit.

As, in 58, the place value of 5 is 5 × 10 = 50 and place value of 8 is 8 × 1= 8; the face value of 5 is 5 and of 8 is 8.


3. In the number 475, the digit 5 is at one’s place, digit 7 is at ten’s place and digit 4 is at hundred’s place.

So, place value of 5 = 5, place value of 7 = 7 × 10 = 70, and place value of 4 is 4 × 100 = 400.

Thus, for the place value of a digit, the digit is multiplied by the place value of 1 it has to be that place.


For Example:

In 768;

the place value of 8 = 8 × 1 = 8

the place value of 6 = 6 × 10 = 60 and

the place value of 7 is 7 × 100 = 700.



4. Now it is the general law that the digit possesses its place value as the product of the digit and place value of one to be at that position. 

For Example:

(i) In a number 4129; 

the place value of 9 is 9 × 1 = 9 as 9 is at one’s or unit’s place.

the place value of 2 is 2 × 10 = 20 as 2 is at ten’s place.

the place value of 1 is 1 × 100 = 100 as 1 is at hundred’s place.

the place value of 4 is 4 × 1000 = 4000 as 4 is at thousand’s place.


(ii) In a number 3720, the place value of

3 is 3 × 1000 = 3000

7 is 7 × 100 = 700

2 is 2 × 10 = 20

0 is 0 × 1 = 0

3 being at Th-place

7 being at H-place

2 being at T-place

0 being at one’s or unit’s place


(iii) Place value of the digits 3702 are shown below:

Place Value of the Digits 3702


(iv) Here, we also see that the place value of the digit 0 in a number is always zero, whatever may be its position.

Place Value of the Digit 0


Place-value of a Digit in a Number:

We know that the position of a digit in a number determines its corresponding value in the number. Let us consider the number 64,19,85,062 and write place-value of each digit in the following chart.

Place-value of a Digit in a Number

We read the above number as thirty-four crore, nineteen lakh, seventy-five thousand, fifty-two.

Place-value of a Digit

The place-value of a digit in a number depends upon the place it occupies in the place-value chart.

Place-Value of a Digit = Face-Value × Value of the Place it Occupies in the Place-Value Chart.

Place Value of a Digit


Solved Examples Place-value of a Digit in a Number:

1. Consider the number 9,24,658

Let us arrange the digits of this in the place-value chart :

Arrange the Digits in Place Value Chart

From the above place-value chart, we have,

8 is at ones place,

                so its place-value is 8 ones = 8 × 1 = 8.


5 is at tens place,

                so its place-value is 5 tens = 5 × 10 = 50.


6 is at hundreds place,

                so its place-value is 6 hundreds =6 × 100 = 600.


4 is at thousands place,

                so its place-value is 4 thousands = 4 × 1,000 = 4000.


2 is at ten thousands place,

                so its place-value is 2 ten thousands =2 × 10,000 = 20,000.


9 is at lakhs place,

                so its place-value is 9 lakhs = 9 × 1,00,000 = 9,00,000.


2. Write the place-value of 3 in each of the following numbers:

(i) 23,584

Face Value:

Consider the number 3,92,687

It has six digits 3,9,2,6,8 and 7.

We say that in 3,92,687, the face value of 3 is 3, 9 is 9, 2 is 2, 6 is 6, 8 is 8 and 7 is 7.

The face-value of a digit in a number is value of the digit itself regardless of the position of the digit.

(iii) Face-value of 8 in 2,62,498 is 8.

(iv) Face-value of 6 in 61,490 is 6.



Activity for understanding place values of digits in 5-and 6-digit numbers using paper strips.

Required Materials: Paper strips of dimensions 20 cm × 5 cm (approx.)

Instructions:

Step I: Take a paper strip and fold it into 6 equal parts as shown.

Step II: Write 3,00,000 in the first box from left of the strip.

Step IV: In the next box write 50,000.

Step V: Similarly, in the next boxes, write 8000, 400, 30 and 7 respectively.

Step V: Now, carefully fold the strip as shown below.

In this way, the folded strip represents the number 358437


Step VI: If we unfold it, it represents the place value of each digit.

In the same way, we can form other numbers and get the place value of each digits.
