Free Y5 maths worksheet: partitioning large numbers

Free maths worksheet from mathsblog.co.uk

A good understanding of place value is needed to partition a number. Always think of large numbers in blocks of 3: hundreds, tens and units: then hundreds, tens and units of thousands: then hundreds, tens and units of millions. So 456 456 456 is four hundred and fifty six million, our hundred and fifty six thousand and four hundred and fifty six.

Partitioning a large number such as 2 345 678:

2 345 678 = 2 000 000 + 300 000 + 40 000 + 5 000 + 600 + 70 + 8
