In elementary school children begin to learn about what each digit in a number represents, or its place value. For example, in the number 34, there are 3 tens and 4 units. They can use this knowledge of place values to solve problems using 100 squares, answer more than/less than questions, solve money problems and also use it to answer number bond questions.

Can you solve the place value problems?
