Whole numbers in expanded form review

Review writing whole numbers in expanded form, and try some practice problems.

Expanded form

Expanded form is a way to write a number by adding the value of its digits.
We can use a place value chart to think of the value of a number's digits.

Example

Let's write start color #11accd, 7, end color #11accd, start color #7854ab, 2, end color #7854ab, start color #1fab54, 2, end color #1fab54, start color #ca337c, 9, end color #ca337c in expanded form.
