friend of mine has a daugther. She is 3 grade. I can not help her, so I hope that somebody can do it...there is the problem ...
"Write a six-digit number in which the digit 4 has the value of 40 000" ????????????????
Can u do it???? I can be here to 10 o'clock. ....beacuse the girl has to go sleep
Ok I'm a little confused but maybe the problem is asking for place holders.
So lets say you have the number 246371
This can be expressed as
200000 + 40000 + 6000 + 300 + 70 + 1.
The digit 4 has a place value of 40000.
Does this make sense or look like what she is learning?
what 11rdc11 and i gave you is correct. they are looking for a number where the place holder in the 10 thousands position is 4....very stupid math problem is this the true ?????? poor kids....I'm a teacher too...form Europe, but this is very, veryyy strange for me...
what do you know about place holders? have you ever heard of phrases like a numbers in the "ones" place, or "tens" place, or "hundreths" place?
you need a basic understanding of arithmetic and numbers to do this. the girl you are doing it for will probably get it, since chances are, she would have covered this in class.
