Identify the Value of Each Digit Up to 3 Decimal Places | Year 6 Maths

## What you need to know

Things to remember:

• When identifying the value of digits in decimals, we work from left to right.

If we were looking for value of digits in a whole number, we start from the right and go left.

What is the value of each digit in 7236?

$$6\rightarrow Units$$

$$3\rightarrow Tens$$

$$2\rightarrow Hundreds$$

$$7\rightarrow Thousands$$

$$6\times1=6$$

$$3\times10=30$$

$$2\times100=200$$

$$7\times1000=7000$$

So, how do we identify values in a decimal number? We do it in the exact same way!

What is the value of each digit in 8.432?
