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.
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)
