Place value of a digit increases 10 times with each shift to the left of it

and decreases by 10 (or is 1/10 of it) with each shift to the right.

greater lesser

In a number, a digit also represents 10 times as much as the place value to its right.

A digit also represents 1/10 as much as the place value to its left. (dividing by 10 = 1/10 of its value)

To compare the value of one digit in one place value to the value

of the same digit in a different place value: Ask yourself three key questions...

1) Greater or Lesser? - Is the first digit place value given greater or lesser than the second digit place value?

2) Number of Steps? - from the first digit place value to the last digit place value

3) Answer? (at first you can use the chart to find your answer)
