CCSS Math: 4.NBT.A.2
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\blueD7\purpleD2\greenD2\maroonD9 in expanded form.
7229=7 thousands7229=\blueD{7}\text{ thousands} +2 hundreds++\,\purpleD{2}\text{ hundreds}+ 2 tens+9 ones\greenD{2}\text{ tens}+\maroonD9\text{ ones}
72297229 in expanded form is 7000+200+20+9\blueD{7000}+\purpleD{200}+\greenD{20}+\maroonD9.
