In this GCSE Maths revision video, our GCSE Maths tutor discusses Place Value. Place Value is the idea that each digit in a given number represents a different amount. The column the digit appears in tells you its value. If you are having trouble remembering what the place value of a certain digit is, place a 1 below that digit, then keep on adding zeros until you reach the last number. The number you get will tell you what the place value for that column is – tens, hundreds, or thousands, etc.
