Unit 1: Number Sense

Topic B: Expanded Form

When we write a number in expanded form, each digit is written with its place value.

Example:

millions hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones
598 is made of 5 9 8
Each is written 500 90 8
Expanded form 500 + 90 + 8

Example:

millions hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones
1068 is made of 1 0 6 8
Each is written 1000 60 8
Expanded form 1000 + 60 + 8

Example:

millions hundred thousands ten thousands thousands hundreds tens ones
243690 is made of 2 4 3 6 9 0
Each is written 200000 40000 3000 600 90 0
Expanded form 200000 + 40000 + 3000 + 600 + 90

Exercise Two

Write each number from expanded form. Check your work using the answer key at the end of the exercise.

Example: 600 + 30 + 7 = 637

Example: 7000 + 500 + 40 + 1 = 7541

Example: 4000000 + 600000 + 70000 + 8000 + 900 + 3 = 4678903

  1. 400 +  10  +  6 =
  2. 500 +  40  +  2 =
  3. 5000 +  600  +  10  +  8 =
