Difference between place value and the value of the digit

If your teacher or lecturer ever ask you what is the “Place Value of a Certain Digit” or the “Value of a Specific Digit”, then watch this video. Place value refers to the place of the digit in a place value diagram. It includes such names as units (ones), tens, hundreds, thousands and even tenths, hundredths etc. For example, in the number 3 482 the place value of the 4 will be hundreds. Value of the digit depends on where a specific number lies on a place value diagram. In the number 3 482 the value of the digit 4, four hundred (400). We hope you like this video.

      Place value indicates the value for the specific place in a number. E.g. in the number 487, the 4 is in the place value column of hundreds. Thus, the digit 4 has a value of 400. Similarly, the 8 is in the place value column of tens. Thus, the digit 8 has a value of 80. In mathematics, there is not something as “plans” value. It is place value. Hope this helps!

      The digit 6 is in the place value column of units. (Maybe your teacher referred to it as ‘ones’). And the value of the digit 6 is 6. Hope this helps!
