Partition Numbers (to 1000)

Lesson

When we write a number, each digit stands for a different value. When we partition a number, we break it up into these different parts. Can you see the word 'part' in partition? By breaking a number into parts, we can do things like share the number, by sharing each part separately.

Have a look at this video to see some different ways to break up a number, as well as an example showing you how you might use these new parts of your number.

Fill in the box with the missing number.

$394=4+\editable{}$394=4+

Express $627$627 in expanded form. For example, $145$145 in expanded form is equal to $100+40+5$100+40+5.

We have written a number in the number expander below.

Number Expander: | $5$5 | Tens | $6$6 | Units |

What is the value of the units?

What is the value of the tens?

Now look at the number $89$89. What is the value of the tens?
