What is Place Value?
Updated: Jan 13, 2021
In this post, we'll unpack the concept of place value and how to go about answering maths questions on place value. Place value refers to the value of each digit in a number. For example, the 7 in 370 represents 7 tens, or 70; however, the 7 in 7,006 represents 7 thousands, or 7,000. It is very important that to realize that whilst a digit can be the same, its value depends on where it is in the number!
