Place Value Word Problems

Do you remember the names of all the place values up to Millions?

That’s it! 💪

Sometimes you'll see word problems dealing with place values.

Knowing these names will help you out.

Let’s try one!

What number has 3 Tens and 2 more Ones than the Tens?

How can we figure this out? 🤔

Let’s use a place value chart with Ones and Tens. 👇

We know that we have 3 Tens. Let’s put that in our table.

Perfect! Now, we need to figure out what is "2 more Ones than our Tens".

How can we do this? 🤔

Our Tens is 3.

We add 2 to 3!

3 + 2 = 5

So, our Ones value is 5. ✅

Let’s put that in our table!

The answer is 35!

Let’s try another one! 🤗

What number has 7 tens and 4 fewer Ones than the Tens?

Let’s put 7 in our place value chart:

Now, how do we figure out our Ones.

4 fewer than the Tens? 🤔

Our Tens is 7.

To figure out 4 fewer than 7, we subtract!

7 - 4 = 3

We can put 3 in our place value table:

You’ve got it!! 🎉

Figure these out:

What is 6 Tens and no Ones?

It's **60**!

What is 3 Tens and the same number of Ones as Tens?

You got it! It's **33**!

Great job! 🎉

Now, you can try the practice! 💪
