Video transcript

what we're going to do in this video is think a little bit about place value tables and sometimes they're referred to as place value charts in previous videos we've already talked about the idea of place value and a place value table or a place value chart it's just a way to say how much we have how much value we have in each place in a very very clear way so here they say use the place value chart to write sixty thousand two hundred and twenty nine and this is the place value table or place value chart right over here they say plate enter a digit one digit number in each box of the place value chart so really all they're saying is how many ten thousands do we have how many thousands how many hundreds how many tens and how many ones and like always it's always a good idea to try to have a go at it before I do it with you so why don't you do that why don't you pause the video and on a little piece of scratch paper say how many ten thousands are in sixty thousand two hundred twenty-nine how many thousands are there how many hundreds how many tens and how many ones alright now let's do this together so we could start at the left in the ten thousands place this is the ones place this is the tens place and we did a little bit neater so this is ones tens hundreds thousands ten thousands so we can see that we have six ten thousands so all we would do is say we'd put a six there we have six ten thousands and then how many thousands oh that would be one place over to the right this is interesting we can see very clearly we actually have zero thousands so zero thousands you might say hey when you say this out you say sixty thousand two hundred twenty-nine now we have 60 thousands well you already accounted for that in the six ten thousands six ten thousands is 60,000 but just in the in the thousands place you have none and then we move on to the hundreds place you can see very clearly we have two hundredths and then we can go to the tens place and I'm written over a little bit but we have two tens and then last but not least we have nine ones and we're done and so the whole point of this video is to just get you comfortable with this type of format with a place value table or place value chart and all it is is a way of really clearly writing out how much value you have in each place in a number like this
