# Place value and face value are always equal at which place: (1) Hundreds (2) Ones (3) Thousands (4) Tens

Place value can be defined as the value represented by a digit in a number on the basis of its position in the number.

## Answer: The place value and face value are always equal at ones place.

The face value of a number is the value of the digit or the numeral itself.

**Explanation:**

Let's take the number 497

The face value of 7 in the number = 7

The place value of 7 in the number = 7 × 1 = 7 (ones place)

The face value of 9 in the number = 9

The place value of 9 in the number = 9 × 10 = 90 (tens place)

The face value of 4 in the number = 4

The place value of 4 in the number = 4 × 100 = 400 (hundreds place)

Thus, we can clearly observe that the face value and the place value were equal at ones place, i.e., 7
