Idea summary

Place value tables are useful in breaking up numbers.

Let's see how we can partition a number in the hundreds of thousands, and then how to partition a number slightly differently, to solve a division problem.

Enter a 7 digit number to see the value of each digit.

Any 7 digit number can be expanded into millions, hundred thousands, ten thousands, thousands, hundreds, tens, and units.

Fill in the boxes with the missing numbers.

8\,555\,777=⬚+500\,000+50\,000+⬚+700+70+⬚
