Place values deal with tens, tenths and units to name a few Look at these six numbers: 124, 142, 214, 241, 412, 421. They have been formed using only three digits, but they are all different because the digits have been put in different positions within the numbers: we say that the digits have different place positions and each place has a place value. In this 11-plus Maths quiz you will get the chance to revise place values in whole numbers < 10,000.
Use this information to help you find a digit's place value. Reading the number from right to left: the first digit is in the units' place; the second digit is in the tens' place; the third digit is in the hundreds' place; the fourth digit is in the thousands' place.
For example, in 3,659 the 9 is in the units' place; the 5 is in the tens' place; the 6 is in the hundreds' place; the 3 is in the thousands' place.
