# 1.2 Numbers with zeros

The zero in a number plays a very important part in deciding its value.

Four hundred is written:

HTU
400

We need to put in the two zeros to show that it is four hundred and not just four.

Six hundred and seven is written:

HTU
607

We need the zero to show that there are no tens.

## Activity 2: Place value

Fill in the boxes to show the value of each figure. The first two are done for you.
