** Number Values**
**Counting**
We start counting whole numbers with 1, 2, 3, and so on, using one **digit **(number place), until we get to 9. Then the next number is 10 which starts the numbers with 2 digits. Then we continue with 11, 12, 13, and so on. So now using 2 digits we can represent the number of tens plus the number of ones. For example,** 14 **is 1 tens and 4 ones, or 10 + 4 ones.
We can continue counting with 2 digits until we get to** 99**. The next number we count will be **100**, which now adds a third digit to represent the number of **hundreds**, plus the number of **tens**, and the number of **ones**.
**Reading the numbers**
As we add digits our numbers show larger values, and we need to **say the number** in a way that **tells it's value**. Lets look at some numbers and how we say the numbers.
If it is just a 2 digit number like **37**, the tens is said **thirty** with the **seven: thirty seven**.
A three digit number **234** is said and read, **two hundred thirty four**. You **don't** read it two, three, four.
Let's now look at the **names** of the **number places** so that we can understand even larger numbers.
When you read a **four digit number**, like 7,286 you say it **7 thousand, 2 hundred 86**.
