Face Value in Maths

 Face Value of a Digit in a Number 

The face value in Maths is the value of digit in a number. We know that every number has a digit . Numbers may be of single digit, two digit, three digit or more than three digits. There are innumerable numbers. Each digit has its place value as well as face value.

In brief-

  • The face value of a digit in a number is the value of digit itself.
  • This value is the same wherever it is placed in a number.

Examples of these values

Now we shall take an example.

  • 4 is 4

  • 6 is 6
  • 2 is 2
