Place Value – Definition with Examples

What is place value?

Place value is the value of every digit in a number.
For example, the 6 in 360 represents 6 tens, or 60.

So the place value of 6 in 360 is 60. ; however, the 6 in 6,006 represents 6 thousand, or 6,000.

In this example, we can notice that even though the digits are same in both given numbers, but place value changes with the change in it’s position.
