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.


Let's write 7229 in expanded form.
7229=7 thousands +2 hundreds+ 2 tens+9 ones
7229 in expanded form is 7000+200+20+9.
