## What is Place Value?

Place Value in mathematics refers to the positional importance of digits within a number. The value of each digit in a number varies depending on its position.

In the decimal system, moving to the left increases the value of a digit ten times, while moving to the right decreases ten times.

For example, in 8245, the ‘8’ digit represents the 8000 (8 × 1000), the ‘2’ digit represents the 200 (2 × 100), and the ‘4’ digit represents 40 (4 × 10) and the ‘5’ digit represents 5 (5 × 1).

Thus it is expressed as one, ten, hundred, thousand, lakh, million, crore, billion, etc.

**Place Value of a Number** (8245):

In the Indian system, it is eight thousand, two hundred and forty-five.

- 1000 × 8 = 8000 (8 thousand)
- 200 × 2 = 200 ( 2 hundred)
- 10 × 4 = 40 (forty)
- 1 × 5 = 5 (five)

In words “eight thousand two hundred and forty five”.

### How to write millions in numbers?

In the numerical system, “million” is represented as 1,000,000. Here is how to represent the number of millions when you write it:

**The number one million is 1,000,000**:

- The number ‘1’ at the beginning represents one million.
- These are followed by six zeros (0), which represent a specific value of the digits in each place.
- When we move from right to left, the value of each zero increases by ten times. So, the first zero represents 10, the second represents 100, the third represents 1,000, and thus the sixth represents 1,000,000.

So, the number 1,000,000 is a numerical value of one million in the international numeral system and 10 lakh in the Indian numeral system. It is a numerical term in mathematics where large numbers are measured. Please see here to convert lakhs to millions or other number systems.
