Complete the following: 3471 is equal to blank plus 400 plus 70 plus one.

We know that we have 3471. And we’re trying to write that value in expanded form. Expanded form breaks apart the thousands, the hundreds, the tens, and the units. 3471 has one unit, seven tens or 70, four hundreds, 400. It has the digit three in the thousands place. And that tells us that there are three thousands.

Expanded form would be 3000 plus 400 plus 70 plus one.
