# Place Value 2 (Difficult)

Welcome to the second of our Difficult level Eleven plus maths quizzes on Place Value. By now you should be very familiar with the way the values of digits change depending on their position in a number. If not, then don’t worry – here’s another chance to practice with whole and decimal numbers.

If you’ve forgotten, here’s a quick reminder:

Place values BEFORE the decimal point are read RIGHT to LEFT with the following values – Units, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten thousands.

Place values AFTER the decimal point are read LEFT to RIGHT with the following values – Tenths, Hundredths, Thousandths, Ten thousandths.

Make sure you read each question thoroughly – it’s very easy to mistake ‘hundreds’ for ‘hundredths’!
