Video transcript

in a previous video we learned about expanded form how we could write a number like 832 that has eight hundreds three tens and two ones as 800 plus 30 plus two eight hundreds three tens - once and we saw other examples of that in this video we're going to think about going from a number written in words to expanded form so let's look at an example let's say I were to write the following and I'm not even going to read it out to you because I want you to work through it on your own so this thing that I am writing why don't you pause the video and see if you could write this thing in expanded form so first how many hundreds are we dealing with well they say seven hundreds right over here so we could say alright that's going to be seven hundred like that and then they say 41 well forty one is a combination of a certain number of tens and a certain number of ones 41 is the same thing as 40 plus one so why don't we write it that way so the forty part we can just write like that plus 40 and then we have a one plus one and there you have it we've written 741 the word written in word form we've now rewritten it in expanded form
