# Find the Difference between Place Value and Face Value

In the previous chapter, we discussed the difference between place value and face value.

In this chapter, we shall discuss how to find the difference between place value and face value of a digit in the number.

## How to Find the Difference between Place Value and Face Value?

• The difference between place value and face value is the subtraction of face value from place value. That is,
• Difference = place value ‒ face value

Here are some examples with step-by-step explanation.

Let’s take a look-

Example-1
