Use the following place value table to find the result of 5,465 plus 2,324.

In this question, we have to add together two four-digit numbers. Both numbers have a thousands, hundreds, tens, and ones digit. And we’re told to use the place value table to help us add. When we’re adding two four-digit numbers, we always start by adding the ones first. There are five ones in the number 5,465 and four ones in the number 2,324. And we know that five plus four equals nine.

Now we can add in the tens column. We’ve got six 10s, and we need to add two more. Six 10s plus two 10s gives us a total of eight 10s. Now we need to add the hundreds. We’ve got four 100s, and we need to add three. Four plus three is seven, giving as a total of seven 100s. Finally, we need to add in the thousands column. What is five plus two? It’s seven. So we have a total of seven 1,000s.

5,465 plus 2,324 equals 7,789. We added our two numbers using the place value table to help.
