How to Compare the Place Values between Two Numbers? (i.e. the 5 in both of these numbers 857 and 45,986) - When studying number systems, the concept of place values is the most important ones. Grabbing the concept of place values firmly helps makes mathematical problems easy and less of a challenge. Each number comprises of different digits and each of these digits hold a unique value. Knowing the place values, we can determine the value of the number, compare two number systems, solve word problems, and round off numbers. Place values play a significant role in comparing two multi-digit numbers. To understand place values let us consider two numbers; 857 and 45,986. Both these numbers include the number five but the value of each of these 5s is different. Here is a comparison of these two numbers based on their place values; The 5 you see in 857 holds a tens value, which means it is adding 5 tens in the number, representing 50. The 5 you see in 45,986 holds the thousands value, which means it is adding 5 thousands in the number, representing 5000. Teo same digits will have a unique value in two different number systems.
