At the end of the lesson, students should be able to know and find the value and place value of digits in a given number.

Place value describes the position of a digit in a given number and the value it has. The value of a digit changes when the place or position of the digit changes. Every digit in a number has a value.

Under this topic we will be using the place value chart or table to tell the value and position of a given digit.

** Example 1**.

Use a place value chart or table to tell the value and place value of **15933**

__Solution__

From the chart above,

The** place value** of 1 is** ten thousands.**

The **value** of 1 is **10000 or ten thousand.**

The **place value** of 5 is **thousands.**

The **value** of 5 is** 5000 or five thousand.**

The **place value** of 9 is **hundreds.**

The **value** of 9 is **900 or nine hundred.**

The **place value** of 3 is **tens.**

The **value** of 3 is **30 or thirty.**

The **place value** of the next 3 is **ones or units.**

The **value** of the 3 is **3.**

**From the table, it can be observed that the place value describes the position of the digit and the value tells us how much the digit is worth.**
