When we write the number 645, the 6 is not really a 6.
As it is in the hundreds place, its value is really 600.
The abacus below shows this.
*Notice the abacus uses units. Units is another word for ones.
As we can see above, 645 has 6 hundreds, 4 tens (40) and 5 ones (or units).
In this activity, we are going to have a go at identifying the value of a digit in a number.
Let's get started.
