It is important to understand place value because if you are in a store you need to know how much you are spending. Also whenever you are doing math you need to know what number is in what place value.

The reason why it is very important to understand place value is if I had a meth quiz and it said " take the # 3,743 and tell me what the place value of the 7 and the 4 is "then you would have to know what place value the 2 # 's are in .

One video that i made me know how to brake up numbers was a study james that helped me know ones tens thousands and millions. it was a chart that helped me learn braking up numbers as easy as pie. also i liked how they discribed the chart for us and that is how i learned braking up numbers. also it is important to know this because if you buy something you will know what the price for it and if you did not learn this you would probably end up giving more or less.

It is important to understand the place value of a number because if you se the number 4 in the tens place the value of the number is not 4 it is 40. You have to know place value when you grow up also because if you fill out a check you have to be able know the place value of the number you filled out.

It is important to understand the place value of a number because if you don't know if a nine was in the tens place and you were wrong you would feel shy because you said the wrong answer.If you were older and you were signing a check you would have to know what the digit meant.

It is important to know the place value of a number because if you are adding 218,537 + 73,010 you will have to know how to line up the factors. It is important to line up the factors because if you line them up wrong you will not get the right product.

It is important to understand the place value of a number because if you don't know the place value you won't know how to say number for example if you go to the store you don't know how many dollars it is you will buy it and when you go pay the say it is $10.00 and then you don't have enough money to buy the things you want.It is really important to know the place value because you won't know the number.
