#### 1. Understanding places and values of digits in a number

There are 10 different symbols that we use to generate numbers - 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Every number is a combination of these symbols or digits.

When we use these digits to make numbers, every digit is assigned a value based on the place in which it is positioned in the number.

Without places and values we would need a unique symbol to represent every possible number in the world!

#### 2. Finding the places and values of digits in a number

Let us take these two numbers: 478 and 3742. The digit 4 has a different value in each of these two numbers.

In 478, the digit 4 is in the hundreds place, so its value is 4 x 100 or 400 or four hundred.

In 48 236 951, the digit 4 is in the ten millions place, so its value is 4 x 10 000 000 or 40 000 000 or forty million.

So, the value of a digit is determined based on the position at which it is placed inside the number.
