3. Identifying The Values Of Numbers
Let’s place the digits in 29 415 in their respective places in the table below.
Depending on where the digits are in the table, they each represent a different value.
The digit 5 is in the ones place, it has a value of 5.
The digit 1 is in the tens place, it has a value of 10.
The digit 4 is in the hundreds place, it has a value of 400.
The digit 9 is in the thousands place, it has a value of 9000.
The digit 2 is in the ten thousands place, it has a value of 20 000.
Question 1:
In the following number, the value of the digit 4 is __________.
Solution:
Since the digit 4 is in the ten thousands place, it has a value of 40 000.
Answer:
40 000
Question 2:
In the following number, the value of the digit 6 is __________.
Solution:
Since the digit 6 is in the hundreds place, it has a value of 600.
Answer:
600
Question 3:
In the following number, the value of the digit 8 is __________.
Solution:
Since the digit 8 is in the thousands place, it has a value of 8000.
Answer:
8000
Question 4:
Which of the following has the same value as the number shown?
- \(4000 + 600 + 500 + 80\)
- \(4600 + 500 + 80\)
- \(40\; 000 + 6000 + 500 + 80\)
- \(40 \;000 + 6000 + 5000 + 80\)
Solution:
\(\begin{align} 4000 + 600 + 500 + 80 &= 5180 \\[2ex] 4600 + 500 + 80 &= 5180\\[2ex] 40 \;000 + 6000 + 500 + 80 &= 46 \;580\\[2ex] 40 \;000 + 6000 + 5000 + 80 &= 51 \;080 \end{align}\)
Answer:
(3) 46 580
Question 5:
In which of the following numbers is the value of the digit ‘7’ the greatest?
