# Representing decimal place value

Video transcript

Choose the right number of
each place value to make 8,129. And we could say this
is 123 thousandths. Or we could say it is 1 tenth,
2 hundredths, and 3 thousandths. So let's just go place by place. So first we have 8. This 8 right over here is
in the thousands place. It represents 8 thousands. So we're going to
have 8 thousands. So let's select 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8 thousands. Then we have one 100. So we literally just have
only one 100 right over there. Then we have 2 tens. This 20 is 2 tens. So we're going to need 2 tens. Then this 9, well,
that's just 9 ones. So it's 1, 2, 3,
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. And now we're going
into the tenths place. This is only 1 tenth. So 1 tenth right like that. Now this is 2 hundredths. So we're going to put
2 hundredths there. Then finally, 3 thousandths--
1, 2, 3 thousandths. And we check our answer. And we got it right.
