1.04 Partition 5 digit numbers


Are you ready?

Can you partition numbers up to the thousands (4 digits)?

We have written a number in the number expander.

  1. What is the value of the tens?

  2. What is the value of the hundreds?



Let's see how to break up a 5 digit number, and then put it back together. We'll start with a 4 digit number to warm up.



Question 1

Fill in the number expander for $60908$60908.

  1. $60908$60908 $=$= $\editable{}$ ten thousands $\editable{}$ thousands $\editable{}$ hundreds $0$0 tens $8$8 units
  2. Write $60908$60908 as a number sentence.

Question 2

Write the following as a single number: $10000+7000+90$10000+7000+90.


Except for the far left digit of our number, every place must have a number in it. If we don't have any of a place, we must put a zero in that place. The number twenty eight thousand and forty nine has no hundreds, so we would write it like this $28049$28049.
