Place value is really important when building up numbers. The order the digits are written in a number determine its value.

To remind you what place value is, here's an introduction with some dinosaur friends.

A number can be made of more than one digit. So we use place value headings, like ones, tens, hundreds and thousands, to help us understand the value of each digit.

## Example 1

How do you represent the number 167 with a place value chart?

The number 167 is made of the digits 1, 6 and 7.

We can use a place value to chart to express the number 167 like this:

HundredsTensOnes
167

In other words, 1 hundred, 6 tens and 7 ones.

This number can also be represented in other ways without using numbers. Each pictorial representation in the slideshow below shows 167.

Remember, if the digits were put in a different order, the number would change completely.

## Example 2

Let's rearrange the digits 1, 6 and 7 into 671 to see how it changes the number.

### Place value counters

The same digits have been used but they are in a different order. Their value completely changes.

## Example 3

Ellie wants to show the number 345 using place value counters. Can you help her?

The first thing you need to do is partition the number. That's 3 hundreds, 4 tens and 5 ones.

Now put them together to represent 345:
