Using a place value chart, put 12 ones disks into the ones column. Combine 10 ones disks to create 1 tens disks, and drag the tens disk to the tens column. The number 12 can be thought of as 1 ten and 2 ones. Add 8 more disks to the tens column to make the numbers 92. Then add one more disk and combine the 10 tens disks to create 1 hundreds disk. Drag the hundreds disk 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.
