Face value, Place value
- A number can consist of one or many digits.
- Each digit has a place (or we can say a position) in the number
- Places are defined as units, tens, hundreds, thousands and so on starting from the right. Thus rightmost place is the unit place.
- Each digit has 2 types of values - face value and place value
- Face value is the actual value of a digit irrespective of its position.
E.g. place value of 9 in 4928 is 9. Similarly, place value of 8 in 4928 is 8.
- Place value possessed by digit because of its place or position in the number.
- Place value = (face value of the digit) X (value of the position or place).
E.g. place value of 9 in 4928 = face value of 9 X value of the place (hundred) = 9 X 100 = 900.
- At unit's place, face value and place value of a number are same.
- Face value and place value of zero is always zero.
