#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning to write numbers using numerals.

We can use place value to write numbers accurately in numerals.

Let's take the number six hundred and twenty-one as an example.

We know that the number has 6 hundreds, 2 tens and a one.

 Hundreds Tens Ones 6 2 1

We can write this using place value: 600 + 20 + 1

So, the number in numerals is 621.

Let's try an example question together.

Example

Write this number using numerals:

Four hundred and thirty-six.

We can use place value to split the numbers into hundreds, tens and ones.

 Hundreds Tens Ones 4 3 6

400 + 30 + 6

So, the number four hundred and thirty-six can be written in numerals as 436.

Sometimes, we might have a number that causes a little problem, such as two hundred and seven.

We can see that there are two hundreds and seven ones, but there are no tens!

We need to include a zero in the tens place to act as a place holder. If we didn't, we would simply have the number 27 which is not the right number!

If we include the zero as a place holder, our number is 207.

Are you happy with that?
