    4th Grade Math Assignment

    Ok I guess I am not smarter than a 4th grader. The wife and I completed this assignment last time and they were incorrect. I have done one in which I thought was correct. Someone tell me how to figure out this assignment.

    What did you have last time that was incorrect? Maybe they want 77 hundreds?

    if those are incorrect, then the correct answer is:

    77 hundreds for the first
    5 hundreds for the second
    31 hundreds for the last

    there are no tens or ones for any of them. are you sure you're not missing a thousands column?

    Question 4th Grade Homework

    I am thinking that may be correct. Same here LOL, of course my kid just happen to leave the math book at school. I am going off the instructions from the worksheet. We had this same assignment about 3 weeks ago. My kid did the assignment in class, of course all were wrong and was told to correct the assignment at home.

    question: was that table given to your kid? or did he have to come up with his own table?

    if he has to come up with his own table, i'd add a thousands column. the result would look like this:

    Number.......Thousands...........Hundreds.........Tens..........Ones
    .7700...............7......................7..................0...............0
    ..500................0......................5..................0...............0
    .3100...............3.......................1.................0...............0

    of course, the problem here is: there's no challenge! all we are doing here is rewriting the numbers themselves with each digit in corresponding columns


    EDIT: ok, since the thousands column is not listed, go with my first answer
