Shown using the example below how important place value of a digit is to understand the value of a whole number. 23 means there are 2 sets of 10’s and 3 sets of ones. The representation simply shows how to perfectly illustrate the value of a digit based on its place or position.

Place value is a value represented by a digit in a number on the basis of its position in the number.
