Worksheet Overview

Look at this table which shows the place value of numbers up to millions.


Learn the value of each column and understand how each number is written.


Place value grid

      6 0 2 5
6 0 9 2 0 4 7
1 2 3 4 5 6 7


The numbers shown above are:

Six thousand and twenty-five

Six million, ninety-two thousand and forty-seven

One million, two hundred and thirty-four thousand, five hundred and sixty-seven


Sometimes it helps to read in groups of three.

For example:

6 thousand, then 25.

6 million, then 92 thousand, then 47.

1 million, then 234 thousand, then 567.


To make it easier to read large numbers, it is usual to place a comma to separate them into groups of three:





Sometimes you will see them separated by a gap which works in the same way as the comma, making it easier to read the number.


Let's move on to some questions now.
