Description: Lindsay compares multi-digit numbers such as 350,000 and 53,000. So we want to compare these two numbers and to do that, let's first think about what these digits mean. Looking first at our number on the left, we have a 9 all the way to the right, or in the ones place value, which means just that. Beside the 8, we have a 9 in the 100s place value, so again, we can look at that, 989 is the same as a 900 plus an 80 plus a 9 and let's keep going and fill in these last two.*Teacher Advisor is 100% free.
