Lesson 1: Distinguish between place value and face value of a number
In this lesson, we are going to learn face value and place value of a particular digit in the given number.
Place value:
Place value of a digit in a number is the digit multiplied by thousand or hundred or whatever place it is situated.
Face value:
Face value of a digit in a number is the digit itself. Face value of a digit always remains same irrespective of the position where it is located.
For example,
In 43667, the place value of 3 is = 3 x 1000 = 3000
Here, to get the place value of 3, we multiply 3 by 1000.
Because 3 is at thousands place.
In 43667, the face value of 3 is 3.
Almost every CTET question paper has a question on place values and face values of a digit in a given numbers/s.
