# Place Value with Thousands

 = When we take ten hundred-flats and stack them end-to-end, we get one thousand. Ten hundreds = One thousand. We write a thousand as 1000 or 1,000. The comma  ,  is used to separate the "1" of the thousands from the three other digits. It just makes it easier to read. 10 hundreds = 1,000

On this number line you see only whole hundreds marked. In between each two marks are 99 numbers. Imagine those 99 little lines between 300 and 400!

After nine hundred, the next whole hundred is “ten hundreds” or A THOUSAND, 1,000.
Remember: Ten hundreds make a thousand.

Numbers with four digits are very easy to read. The first of the four digits is in the thousands place. Just read it as “one thousand”, “two thousand”, “five thousand”, and so on.

The rest of the three digits you can read just like you are used to reading three-digit numbers.
