Chapter 1 - Whole Numbers - 1.1 Reading and Writing Whole Numbers - 1.1 Exercises: 3


To find the value of the number, we must find the values of the individual digits. The value of a digit is the digit multiplied by the place value. In this case, two digits are given. 1 in the ten thousands place means 1 times 10 000 equals 10000 and 0 in the hundreds place means 0 times 100 equals 000. The number then is 10000 plus 000 giving us 10000.

Work Step by Step

The ten thousands place is the fifth from the right; the hundreds place is the third from the right. Read as: 10,000 for ten thousands place.
