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.)

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.
