The first digit in five-figure numbers represents ten thousands.

# Place Value 3 (Easy)

Welcome to the third of our Easy level Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Place Value. As you will know by now, the value of a digit changes depending on its position in a number. In five-figure numbers, the first digit represents ten thousands, the second thousands, the third hundreds, the fourth tens and the fifth is ones.

This is quite a simple part of maths so it shouldn’t pose you too many difficulties. Nevertheless, it’s a good idea to get lots of practice on the topic, just to ensure that you are not tripped up when you take your exams.

Please make sure that you read each question and all possible answers carefully before you choose your answer. It’s all too easy to mistake ten thousands for thousands if you rush through the questions. Get into the habit now and you’ll be less likely to make mistakes when it really matters.
