In the Whole Number, How Do You Find the Greatest and Least Place Value? Every digit in the number has a unique value, and place value is a concept that helps us understand it. Without place values, a digit has no value, and even the number does not have a value. In a whole number, except for leading zeros, every digit has a value that determines the value of the whole value. So, how you find the greatest and least value in the whole number? In a whole number, you always assign the smallest value to the first digit from the right-hand side. The smallest place value for whole numbers is unit. The first digit on the left-hand side of the number has the highest value, and the digits on its left side are smaller in value. These worksheets and lessons show students how to move integers around in a number to make the greatest and least possible value.
