Whole Number Place Values Worksheets
We follow the base ten system of numbering. This is where each consecutive digit increases in value by tenfold as you move from right to left in any whole number. The digits can be the same but depending on where they are positioned with the number determines their individual value. For the purposes of this topic, we will focus solely on whole numbers which are found to the left of where a decimal point would be positioned. Below you will find a serious series of worksheets and lessons that teaches students how to identify the name and place value of integers that are to the left of the decimal point. Helping students understand the significance of a digit that is found with in an integer is the key fundamental concept we are pressing on here.

A solid example problem is on top of these problem sets of five.
- Homework 1 - The number 5 was the number of interest. We can see that it is at the Tens place. That would mean that it has a worth of 50.
- Homework 2 - What is the place value and end worth of the underlined integer?
A group of worksheets that should really help put this skill in perspective for students.
- Practice 1 - What place is the selected integer in each of the numbers that you are shown?
- Practice 2 - What is the merit of the selected integer? How can you tell?
- Practice 3 - The comma helps us identify the overall worth of the integers within the number.

What Are the Places Values of a Whole Number?
We come across whole numbers in our daily life and our real life, too, every single day. Whole numbers are all the numbers we have in mathematics, including 0. All of these values are found to the left of the decimal point. They identify full units of value and not parts of them. You see numbers, both small and large, in whole numbers form. Numbers as small as 2 or 4, 50 or 78, 100 or 500, or as big as 1,000,000,000 or 16,784,957,559,595,609, all of these are whole numbers. Any number, whole number, or not is written based on a place value system, or you can say the position of the digit.
Each digit in a whole number has a certain position or a certain integer in the number, and the position has a name in the number. Our number system is called the base ten system because each successive digit found in a number increases in a value ten times greater as we move from right to left. As you can see below on the whole place value chart the first seven places in order range from ones (1s) to millions (1,000,000). Each continuous move from right to left increase tenfold for each digit. In English, we add a comma every third digit to create a separator that makes it easier for the reader to delineate the overall worth.
Let's look at this example to find out about it; 785.
The digit farthest to the right is the digit placed on one's position. The very next digit is placed on the tens position. As you move towards the left side, the positions continue to fill in as in hundreds, thousands, ten thousand, and so on until no digit is left in the number. We can write this same value in what is called expanded form to explicitly specific the total value. 785 would be written as 700 + 80 + 5 in expanded form.
