Question

Darla copies her uncle's address and phone number into her contact list. His area code is 775. His ZIP code is 89507. Which statement about the value of the 5 in 775 and 89,507 is true?

2 Answer

  • The 5 in 775 is 10 times less than the 5 in 89,507. If you were to switch it around starting from 89,507, the 5 in 89,507 is 10 times greater than the 5 in 775.
  • For 775, it's 5 because it is placed in the ones place.

    For 89,507, it's 500 because it is placed in the hundreds place.
