Grade 4 Base Ten - 4.NBT.1
What Is Meant By the Tens, Hundred, and Thousands Place? To understand what tens, hundreds, and thousands of places mean, you have to learn about the concept of Place values. You can visualize place values as same as the fingers in your hand, the fingers are called digits, and so does the numbers 0 – 9. In a number, the value of the digit can be found out by its position. For instance, the number 532 has five 100s, three 10s and two 1s added together to form one number. Let’s visualize them further in the table below. If you add these three numbers together, you will again get the answer 532. So, if the above number tells us about the hundreds, tens, and units place of an expression, where will the thousands place come? It will be placed on the leftmost side in a 4-digit number. Let’s take another example of the expression 4821 in the table below. Things to Remember - Thousands place number has three zeros. - Hundreds place number has two zeros. - Tens place number has a single zero. - One's place digit does not have a zero. This collection of worksheets will have students identifying and actively using place values.
