Whole number place value

In a whole number, the digit farthest to the right is always in the ones place. The next farthest to the right is in the tens place. The remaining digits continue to fill in the place values until there are no digits left.
Example: 459459
The number 459\blueD4\greenD5\goldD9 is made up of 4\blueD4 hundreds, 5\greenD5 tens, and 9\goldD9 ones.
We can also write this as: 459=400+50+9\blueD4\greenD5\goldD9=\blueD{400}+\greenD{50}+\goldD9.
Or we can use a place value chart:
ThousandsHundredsTensOnes
4\blueD45\greenD59\goldD9
Note: The farther the digit is to the left, the greater its place value. For example, 66 hundreds is greater than 66 ones because hundreds are farther to the left.
