fill in the blanks to complete the equation so they have seventy six thousand eight hundred thirty is equal to six ten thousands plus blank thousands plus eight hundred s plus three tens so let's just think about seventy six thousand eight hundred and thirty so if we write seventy six thousand seventy six thousand eight hundred and thirty I'm going to try to color code it eight hundred and thirty we could write this out as being the same thing this is being this is the same thing as 70,000 plus six thousand the seven is in the ten thousands place at seven ten thousands which is seventy thousand plus the six into the thousands place so it's six thousand or six thousands one could say plus eight hundred or you could say eight hundreds 800 plus 3 tens or thirty plus 3 tens or thirty and then there's zero one so we could just write that out as zero if we like now what we have on the right here is almost what they have on the right over here notice the zero they didn't write that so we can ignore that the zero really doesn't affect the value we have three tens we have three tens we have we have them using a color you can see you have eight hundreds you have eight hundred you have but then that's where it starts to break down they have blank thousands here we have six thousands so we're going to think about this a little bit and then they have six ten thousands which is sixty thousand here there's only they have we have seventy thousands so we've got to work through we got to work through these two places right over here so they have six ten thousands which is the same thing as 60,000 we have 70,000 so they essentially took ten thousand from here and regrouped at some place and since these two places are the same they must have regrouped it into the thousands place so let's try to do that so let's get rid of 70,000 or lets get rid of 10,000 out of the 70,000 it becomes 60,000 so this becomes a six and then we're regrouping that into the thousands place so we're going to add we're going to add 10,000 to the thousands place now what's the thousands place going to be then well it's ten thousand plus six thousand it's going to become 16 it's going to become sixteen thousands this right over here is going to become a sixteen so now what we wrote here looks just like what they wrote up here this is six ten thousands plus sixteen thousands plus eight hundreds plus 3 tens and we're done
