"Convert between place values" is the much required stuff for the children who study math in primary level.

**Convert between place values :**

Place values of a digit in a number is the digit multiplied by thousand or hundred or whatever place it is situated.

To convert between place-values, remember the following relations:

1 ten = 10 ones.

1 hundred = 10 tens.

1 thousand = 10 hundreds.

1 ten thousand = 10 thousands. ...

**Example 1 :**

Convert 2 ten thousands as hundreds

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern, that is

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands", **

**"ten thousands"**

**We want to convert ten thousands as hundreds, we have take two steps from right to left. So we have to take two zeroes at the last.**

**Hence, ****2 ten thousands = 200 hundreds**

**Example 2 :**

How many hundreds make 40 tens ?

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds"**

**If we want to convert hundreds from tens, we have take one step from left to right.So we have to cut one zero from 40.**

**Hence, 4**** hundreds = 40 tens**

**In other way,**

**1 hundreds = 10 tens**

**2 hundreds = 20 tens**

**like wise 4 hundreds make 40 tens**

**Example 3 :**

**2 tens = _________ ones?**

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds"**

**If we want to convert hundreds from tens, we have take one step from right to left . So we have to take one zero at the last of 2.**

**Hence, 2 tens = 20 ones**

**In other way,**

**1 ten = 10 ones **

**2 tens = 20 ones**

**Example 4 :**

** _________ hundreds = 30 tens **

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds"**

**If we want to convert hundreds from tens, we have take one step from left to right . So we have to cut one zero from 30.**

**Hence, 3 hundreds = 30 tens**

**In other way,**

**1 hundred = 10 tens **

**2 hundreds = 20 tens**

**like wise 3 hundreds = 30 tens**

**Example 5 :**

**1 tens thousand = _________ tens **

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands", **

**"ten thousands"**

**If we want to reach ten thousands from tens , we have take three steps from right to left . So we have to take 3 zeroes at last of 1.**

**Hence, 1 ten thousand = 1000 tens**

**Example 6 :**

**________ thousand = 70 hundreds **

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands",**

**"ten thousands"**

**If we want to reach thousands from hundreds , we have take one step from left to right . So we have to cut 1 zero from 70.**

**Hence, 7 thousands = 70 hundreds**

**In other way,**

**1 thousand = 10 hundreds **

**2 thousands = 20 hundreds **

**like wise 7 thousands = 70 hundreds **

**Example 7 :**

**________ ten thousands = 80,000 ones**

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands",**

**"ten thousands"**

**If we want to reach ones from ten thousands , we have take 4 steps from left to right. So we have to cut 4 zeroes from 80,000.**

**Hence, 8 ten thousands = 80,000 ones**

**In other way,**

**1 ten thousand = 1000 ones**

**2 ten thousands = 2000 ones **

**like wise 8 ten thousands = 80,000 ones**

**Example 8 :**

**9 ten thousands = _______ **hundreds

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands",**

**"ten thousands"**

**If we want to reach hundreds from ten thousands, we have take 2 steps from right to left So we have to take 2 zeroes at the last of 9.**

**Hence, 9 ten thousands = 900 hundreds**

**In other way,**

**1 ten thousand = 10 thousands = 100 hundreds**

**2 ten thousands = 200 hundreds **

**like wise 9 ten thousands = 900 hundreds**

**Example 9 :**

**4 hundreds = ___ tens **

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds"**

**If we want to reach hundreds from ten thousands, we have take 1 step from right to left. So we have to take 1 zero at the last of 4.**

**Hence, 4 hundreds = 40 tens**

**In other way,**

**1 hundred = 10 tens**

**2 hundreds = 20 tens **

**like wise 4 hundreds = 40 tens**

**Example 10 :**

**4 hundreds = ___ tens **

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds"**

**If we want to reach hundreds from ten thousands, we have take 1 step from right to left. So we have to take 1 zero at the last of 4.**

**Hence, 4 hundreds = 40 tens**

**In other way,**

**1 hundred = 10 tens**

**2 hundreds = 20 tens **

**like wise 4 hundreds = 40 tens**

**Example 11 :**

**70 hundreds = _______ tens**

**Solution :**

Now we have to say the pattern,

**"Ones", "tens", "hundreds", "thousands",**

**"ten thousands"**

**If we want to reach tens from hundreds , we have take one step from right to left . So we have to take 1 zero at the last of 70.**

**Hence, 70 hundreds = 700 tens**

**In other way,**

**1 hundred = 10 tens **

**20 hundreds = 200 tens **

**70 hundreds = 700 tens **
