## Short Form of a Number - Place Values

Hi Kids,

Let us learn how to write a number in short form.

**Definition:**
Reducing a number based on the place value is known as **"Short Form".**

**Example:**
Consider 51

Based on place values, 5 is in 10\'s place and 1 is in 1\'s place.

Multiply the number with the place values 10 and 1.

5 x 10 =50

1 x 1 = 1

So,

50+1=51

Kids need to learn the concept of place values to understand the position of a number, such as ones, tens, hundreds, and thousands places.

This math learning will be helpful for you kids when you carry out math problems with giant numbers.

While writing a number in short form, each digit will represent a different value based on its position in a number.

In this page, you can learn in detail about a number\'s short form with easy definition and example.

Have fun with this place value math learning activity.
