What is place value?
Place value is the value of each digit in a number based on its position. For example, in the number 123,456, the digit 1 is in the hundred thousands place, so it has a value of 100,000. The digit 2 is in the ten thousands place, so it has a value of 10,000. The digit 3 is in the thousands place, so it has a value of 1,000. The digit 4 is in the hundreds place, so it has a value of 100. The digit 5 is in the tens place, so it has a value of 10. The digit 6 is in the ones place, so it has a value of 1.
We can use a place value chart to show the value of each digit in a number. Here is a place value chart for numbers up to 1,000,000:
