• 6. In the number 427,As we move to the left, each position is 10 times bigger! 427 From Units, to Tens, to Hundreds
• 7. In the number 427,As we move to the right, each position is 10 times smaller. 427 From Hundreds, to Tens, to Units
• 8. If we pass the unit value, we have to first write a decimal point 427.1and this value is 10 times smaller than the units
