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.
We can write this using place value: 600 + 20 + 1
So, the number in numerals is 621.
Let's try an example question together.
Write this number using numerals:
Four hundred and thirty-six.
We can use place value to write the numbers into hundreds, tens and ones.
400 + 30 + 6
So, the number four hundred and thirty-six can be written in numerals as 436.
