Number (order and place value)

UK Primary (3-6)

Ordering numbers (90000 to million)

Lesson

Let's have a go at ordering numbers larger than a million! These are numbers with up to $7$7 digits.

When trying to work out which number is bigger, first look for the number that has the most digits. If they have the same number of digits, compare the largest place value first. In a $7$7 digit number, this is the millions value. Watch this video to see how.

Previously, we looked at arranging numbers in ascending and descending order. Now that you have practised identifying which number is larger or smaller, let's try putting a set of numbers in order. Watch this video to see how.

Which is the largest number?

$948644$948644

A$670995$670995

B$867524$867524

C$901844$901844

D$948644$948644

A$670995$670995

B$867524$867524

C$901844$901844

D

We want to arrange the following numbers in ascending order:

$491476,793340,633284$491476,793340,633284

Which number comes first?

$633284$633284

A$491476$491476

B$793340$793340

C$633284$633284

A$491476$491476

B$793340$793340

CWhich number is the second number?
