# use the number 913,256. write the name of the period that has the digits 913.

this is the problem.

on my daughters math homework the problem says:

use the number 913,256.

write the name of the period  that has the digits 913.

My daughter brought this worksheet home today too.

You have 913,256 as the problem. We know that if we work from 6 over the #'s are in these places: 6 in the ones, 5 in the tens, 2 in the hundreds, 3 in the thousands, 1 in the ten thousands and the 9 in the hundred thousands spot.

They teach the kids to group these. So the one spot, ten spot and hundred spot are called ONES PERIOD. The thousands, ten thousands and hundred thousands are grouped in THOUSANDS PERIOD.

Just in case I didn't write that clear; the answer is Thousands Period.

the answer is the thousands group . its the way they word the problem that complicates it . 913,256 256 being the ones group 913 being the thousands group . so the name of the period with 913 , is the thousands group .
glad to see i'm not the only one who didn't understand this 4th grade math question because i'm pretty good at math....i totally agree the way the question was worded made it way confusing....thanks for the help

Each digit in a number has a place value that tells you how much that digit is worth.
Each place value is ten times as large as the next place value to the right.

Numbers are arranged into three place values called periods
The places in the period repeat (hundreds, tens, ones.)
Commas are used to separate periods.
