**Tens and Ones:**A number system is a method of consistently representing numbers using digits or other symbols. The position of a digit in a number system indicates the value of that digit in the given number. For example, \(3\) in \(203\) represents \(3\) ones or \(3\), but \(3\) is \(239\) is \(3\) tens or \( 30\). Although the same digit is present in different numbers, the digit's value depends on its position in that number.

The first two place values for a given number are ones and tens, and the first three place values for a given number are ones to tens. This article covers all concepts related to placing the digits in a given number of digits \(3\) in the hundreds, tens, and ones places. Scroll down to learn more about the tens of thousands concept.

## Ones and Tens: place value of a number

In a number, the place value (local value) of a non-zero digit is the value of that digit according to its position. In mathematics, place value describes the position of a digit within a number. The position of each digit is expanded if we represent the number in general form. Positions start from a unitary place, which we also call the position of ones. Numbers are arranged in the order of their values from right to left: ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, etc.

Imagine a two-digit number, say \(21\).

Obviously \(21=20+1\)

\(⇒2\) is in the tens place and \(1\) in the ones place.

In the number \(21\), the place value of \(2\) is \(20\) and the place value of \(1\) is \(1\).

The value of a digit depends on the position it occupies in a number. The place value of the digit \(0\) is always \(0\), regardless of its position in any number.

Let's take another example.

Take a two-digit number, say \(66\)

Of course \(66=60+6\)

\(⇒6\) is in the tens place and \(6\) in the ones place.

In the number \(66\), the place value of \(6\) is \(60\) in the tens place, and the place value of \(6\) is in the ones place.

**par value of a number**

The face value of a digit for any place in the given number is the value of the digit itself. For example, the face value of the digit \(3\) in the number \(34\) is \(3\) itself.

In \(23\), the nominal value of \(3\) is \(3\).

**tens and ones**

A number can have many digits and each digit has a special place and value.

Let's understand with an example.

Imagine a two-digit number, say \(87\).

The number \(87\) in expanded form can be written as \(87=80+7=8×10+7×1\).

\(⇒8\) is in the tens place and \(7\) in the ones place.

In other words, we can say that in \(87\) the place value of \(8\) is \(80\) (\(8\) tens, so \(8×10\)), and the place value value of \(7\) is \(7\) (\(7\) tens, i.e. \(7×1\)).

So we can say that for a two-digit number, the leftmost digit is in the tens place and the rightmost digit is in the ones place.

#### An activity to memorize ones and tens

To better understand tens and ones, we can use blocks, colored pencils, popsicles, beans, or rocks. Put a pile of them on a table and show that it is easier to count them individually and in groups of ten to count the biggest numbers. First form groups of ten, then count the groups of ten and each block separately.

The number of blocks given above is a slash and consists of \(10\) one or unit blocks. Therefore, each block \(1\) represents ten.

For example, after sorting the block into groups of ten and some with leftover blocks, we have:

We can say: "Here I have four \(10\) groups and \(4\) individual blocks". There are four tens and four ones.

Have popsicles this time too. Group them in groups of ten and some with leftovers if any. Count the ten groups and individually.

And so we can say: "Here I have \(1\) ten palettes in a group and \(2\) leftover palettes". That's a ten and two one. With it we can learn words like ten, twenty, thirty, forty, etc.

### Representation of tens and ones

As discussed above, there are many ways to represent tens and ones, but we generally use blocks.

To represent \(1\) tens, we express it as

To represent \(2\) tens, we express it as

To represent \(3\) tens, we express it as

etc.

Those of one are represented by the individual blocks. For example, the number \(7\) can be represented as shown below.

To represent \(3\) we can represent it as

**Different ways to represent a number**

There are many ways to communicate or represent a number. We can represent a number in base 10 notation, also known as 10 and 1 block notation.

The example of how \(62\) is represented is shown in the image below, which will help us understand the different representations of the number.

**Examples of tens and ones**

Now we are almost experts in representing the number in tens and ones by place value. Let's master ourselves by solving some good examples based on ones and tens.

**Example**1**:**Express \(47\) in block form.

Solution: We can represent \(47\) in block form as;

**example 2**: Count the blocks and write down the number obtained.

Solution: In the figure there is a tens bar and \(9\) individual blocks. So we can write it as \(1×10+9×1=10+9=19\)

So the number formed is \(19\).

**Example**3**:**Find the face value and substitute the value of \(5\) into the number \(59\).

Solution: The par value of the digit \(5\) is \(59\) is \(5\), while the place value of \(5\) is \(59\) is \(50\).

**Example 4:**Represent the number \(27\) in the form of blocks and sticks.

Solution: We can write \(27\) as \(20+7\)

\(⇒2×10+7×1\)

We need \(2\) tens and \(7\) single blocks.

So \(27\) can be represented as

**Worked Examples - Tens and Ones**

** Q.1. has a number**\(8\)

**\(2\)**

*tens and*

*some. What's the number?***The place value of the given numbers is:**

*Responder:*\(8\) tens \(=80\) and \(2\) ones \(=2\).

If we add these numbers together, we get \(80+2=82\).

Therefore, the required answer is \(82\).

*Q.2. Count the tens and ones blocks and write down the number.*

** Responder: **By separating the tens block and the ones block, we can write it as

So the number is \(23\).

** P.3. represent**\(15\)

*in the form of blocks.***First, let's write \(15\) in expanded form.**

*Responder:*\(⇒15=1×10+5\).

Therefore, we need to draw \(1\) blocks of ten and \(5\) individual blocks.

Therefore we can represent \(15\) in terms of blocks as shown below;

*Q.4. Make the blocks and separate them as tens and ones for each of the following given numbers.***A)**\(64\)** B)**\(73\)

**First, let's express the numbers in expanded form:**

*Responder:*a) \(64=6×10+4\)

So there are \(6\) blocks of ten and \(4\) individual blocks.

Therefore \(64\) can be represented in block form as follows:\

b) \(73=7×10+3\)

Thus, there are \(7\) ten blocks and \(3\) individual blocks.

Therefore \(73\) can be represented in block form as follows:

*Q.5. Count the number of tens and ones blocks and write down the number formed.*

**Responder:**Here \(4\) blocks are tens and \(5\) blocks are units.

Also \(4×10+5=40+5=45\)

So the answer is \(45\).

**Summary**

In this article, we discuss the position of a digit in a number, which indicates the value of a digit in the given number. This one-digit position can be specified in any number using place value. We learned the concept of tens and ones. In addition, we also got to know the different ways of representing a block of ten and finally, based on examples, we got to know the concept of tens and units.

**Frequently asked questions about tens and ones**

Let's look at some of the most frequently asked questions about tens and ones:

**Q.1. How are units and tens entered?****Responder:**To introduce the concept of tens and ones, use blocks, crayons, popsicles, beans, or rocks. Put a pile of them on a table and show that it is easier to count them individually and in groups of ten to count the biggest numbers. So first form groups of ten, then count the ten groups and the remaining individual blocks separately.

**Q.2. What is the value of**\(1\)**es**\(31\)**?****Responder:**We can write \(31\) in expanded form as \(31=3×10+1×1\).

So \(3\) is in the tens place and \(1\) in the ones place.

Therefore, the place value of \(1\) is unity.

**Q.3. What are tens and ones?****Responder:**In a two-digit number**,**The value of the digit depends on its position in that number. In place of units, the rightmost digit is known as one, while the leftmost digit is known as ten. For example, imagine a two-digit number, say \(39\).

The number \(39\) in expanded form can be written as \(39=30+9=3×10+9\).

\(⇒3\) is in the tens place and \(9\) in the ones place.

Therefore, we can say that in \(87\) the place value of \(8\) \(80\) (\(8\) tens, i.e. \(8×10\)) and the place value of \ ( 7\) is \(7\) (\(7\) tens, i.e. \(7×1\)).

**Q.4. which is the same as**\(20\)**some?****Responder:**\(20\) can be written as \(2×10\), which is \(2\) tens.

So \(20\) ones equals \(2\) tens.

**Q.5. How many ones make a ten?****Responder:**\(10\) individual blocks of ones, stacked or grouped, make a ten.
