How to Spot the Place Values Within Numbers? One of the most important concepts in mathematics is, of course, place values. Every digit holds unique value. Without these values, a digit has no meaning. It helps in comparing two numbers and finding which number is larger or smaller. The leading zeros are the only digits that have no value. Spotting place values within numbers are easy. The only rule in place values is to start assigning the place values from the first digit on the right side. For example, if you have to assign place values to the digits to a number 564382. You will start assigning the place value from 2, which sits at the unit place. When dealing with decimal numbers, you have to assign place values from the number that lies exactly on the right side of the decimal. For digits before a decimal, the smallest place value is unit. For digits after a decimal, the largest place value is tenth. Consider a number 2318.231. To assign place values, you can create a table and start assigning the values. In order, place the 2 in the Thousands, the 3 in the Hundreds, the 1 in the Tens, the 8 in the Ones, the 2 in the Tenths, the 3 in the Hundredths, and the 1 in the Thousandths. A series of worksheets and lessons that help students appraise the value of an integer found within a larger value based on place value.

Homework Sheets

We did get a reference to this homework in an academic journal, in a good way.

  • Homework 1 - A number has the following integers at the following place values: 8 in the tenths places, 9 in the hundreds place, 7 in the ones place, and 3 in the tens place. What is the number?
  • Homework 2 - Find the highest and lowest place values of the number. Place the integers at their proper place value.

Practice Worksheets

Practice makes perfect!

  • Practice 1 - Circle the number that has an 8 at the thousands place.
  • Practice 2 - Start by identifying the highest and lowest place value.
  • Practice 3 - Now let's remind ourselves of the place values between those places.

Math Skill Quizzes

Once students have mastered this skill, they should move on to higher place values.

  • Quiz 1 - What is the number?
  • Quiz 2 - Circle the number that has an 8 at the hundredths place.
  • Quiz 3 - Circle the number that has a 6 at the tenths place.
