# Whole Numbers’ Place Value Chart, Names, and Periods Explanation

**Whole Numbers:** The whole numbers are those numbers that do not have decimal points. **For example,** 34, 100, 99, and 3 are the whole numbers.

## What is the standard form of a number?

The standard form is just a way to write a number in digits. **For example,** the standard for of Nine is 9. In the same way, the standard form for Five-Hundred is 500.

## What are Periods in a Number?

The standard form of the numbers is usually separated by commas when a whole number has 4 or more digits. We use a comma after every 3 digits of the number that is counted from the right.

**For example,** the standard way to write 100000 is 100,000. If it’s 10000, it will be written this way: 10,000.

So there are 2 periods in 10,000. In the same way, there are 3 periods in 10,504,046.

**Some more examples of Numbers and their period counts**

- The digit 100, 10, or 1 has just one period. You need more than 3 digits in a number to separate by comma

**Let’s use this digit 395,428 and Calculate Place Value.**

We can expand the digit **395,428 **in the following manner to understand the place value

**395,428= (3 x 100,000) + (9 x 10,000) + (5 x 1,000) + (4 x 100) + (2 x 10) + (8 x 1)**

- The place Value of 3 is 3 x 100,000 =
**300,000.** - The Place Value of 9 us 9 x 10,000 =
**90,000.** - The place Value of 5 is 5 x 1,000 =
**5,000.** - The place Value of 4 is 4 x 100 =
**4000.** - The Place Value of 2 is 2 x 10 =
**20.** - The place Value of 8 is 8 x 1 =
**8.**
