If you’ve already played our first set of Eleven-Plus maths quizzes on Place Value (the Very Easy ones), then you’ll know that the values of digits within longer numbers change depending on their position. This second, and slightly more difficult, set of quizzes tests you on numbers between 10,000 and 99,999.
Unlike reading words, you work out the value of a digit within a longer number by reading from right to left – NOT left to right. Their values go like this:
- First number – Units
- Second number – Tens
- Third number – Hundreds
- Fourth number – Thousands
- Fifth number – Ten thousands
Here’s an example: in the number 98,765 the 5 is units, the 6 is tens, the 7 is hundreds, the 8 is thousands and the 9 is ten thousands. It’s really easy once you’ve got the hang of it!
But have you got the hang of it? Try this quiz to find out. Can you get all the questions right?
