Prof. Radcliffe INTRODUCTION TO PLACE VALUE AND WHOLE NUMBERS
Objectives Identify whole numbers Give the value of each digit in a number Write a number in expanded form Write a number in words Write a number with digits instead of words Visualize large numbers
What is a whole number? The whole numbers (or counting numbers) are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. They do not include negative numbers or fractions. Our number system is based on the number 10 (decimal). We write all numbers using the digits 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The positions of the digits in a number determine the values of the digits. This is called place value.
Place Value The first digit on the right is in the ones column. The next digit to the left of the ones column is in the tens column. Each time we move to the left, the columns get 10 times bigger.

Example: Place Value Find the value of each digit in the number 6,081,459. 6,081,459 = 6,000, , , This is called expanded form. DigitValueWords 66,000,000Six million 00Zero 880,000Eighty thousand 11,000One thousand 4400Four hundred 550Fifty 99Nine

One thousand = 1,000 = 10 3 This cube contains 1,000 magnetic spheres (10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000). A typical adult horse weighs about 1,000 pounds.
One million = 1,000,000 = 10 6 One million is one thousand thousands. This clear lucite case holds one million pennies. The maximum takeoff weight of an Airbus A380 is about one million pounds.
One billion = 1,000,000,000 = 10 9 One billion is one thousand millions. The Golden Gate Bridge weighs about two billion pounds.
One trillion = 1,000,000,000,000 = One trillion is one thousand billions. The distance to the nearest star (except the Sun) is about 25 trillion miles. The total weight of all humans is about half a trillion pounds.
Which of these are whole numbers? a)27 b)–14 c)0 d)3.6 e)1,000,000,001 f)2/5 Answer: a, c, e
