#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, you will need to use your place value knowledge to solve a variety of calculations.

Let's recap on the place value of numbers, including those in the millions, using a place value chart.

 1 9 0 1 4 7 0 4 3 1 6 7 9 0 0 2 8 7 9

By looking at this chart, you need to able to recognise the value of each column and understand why it's written like that.

Remember, it can be helpful to read larger numbers in groups of three.

19 thousand, then 14

7 million, then 43 thousand, then 167

9 million, then 2 thousand, then 879

We use commas to separate large numbers into groups of three to make them much easier to read.

Nineteen thousand and fourteen is written as 19,014

Seven million,forty-three thousand, one hundred and sixty-seven is written as 7,043,167

Nine million, two thousand, eight hundred and seventy-nine is written as 9,002,879

Over to you now to use your place value skills to tackle a range of questions. Ready?
