### #Method 1

To expand the number 2,311, we separate a number by their place value and expand it to show the value of each digit.

• The value of digit 2 at Thousands place =2000,
• The value of digit 3 at Hundreds place =300,
• The value of digit 1 at Tens place = 10,
• The value of digit 1 at Ones place =1,

If you add the place value of each digit then you will get a total of 2,311

2000+300+ 10+ 1= 2,311

So, the expanded form of 2,311 is 2000 + 300 + 10 + 1

Another method that can be used for writing numbers in expanded form is to write the digits one by one and convert all the c9ming numbers to zero.

### Method #2

This method works by multiplying the digit with its place value.

Example: 2,311

• 2 x 1000
• 3 x 100
• 1 x 10
• 1 x 1

(2 x 1000) + (3 x100) + (1 x10) + (1 x 1) = 2,311 is the expanded form of 2,311.

### Method #3

In this method, the first digit is written and then its place value is written adjacent to it.

Example: 2,311

2 Thousands + 3 Hundreds + 1 Tens + 1 ones = 2,311.

In this way you can write the expanded form of any number. We hope that you liked this article. Make sure to tell us how you liked these mathematical tips and tricks.
