Note: H stands for Hundreds
T stands for Tens
O stands for Ones (Note: The ones place is also referred to as the units place.)
The position of the digit on the place value chart determines its value. For example, the digit 2
appears twice: once with a place value of hundred, in which case the value of this 2 is 200 or two
hundred; the other 2 has a place value of ten billion, in which case the value of this 2 is
20,000,000 or twenty million.
