Using a place value chart put 12 ones cubes into the ones column. Combine 10 of the ones cubes to create 1 tens rod, and move the tens rod to the tens column. The number 12 can be thought of as 1 ten and 2 ones. Add 8 more rods to the tens column to make the numbers 92. Add one more rod and combine the 10 tens rods to create a hundreds flat. Move the hundreds flat to the hundreds column. The digits in each place value represent the amount of ones, tens, hundreds, or thousands in a number. The number 102 has 1 hundreds, 0 tens, and 2 ones. Each place value represents 10 times as much as the next lower place value.
