Worksheet Overview

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.
