GCSE maths place value questions appear on many exam papers and you can download the questions here. They can be relatively straightforward although you need to be careful about making sure that you apply the rules.

The main things to remember when working with GCSE maths place value questions are:

- Always make the decimal point clear in your answer – it could lose you a mark …
- Numbers less than zero have a negative index to show that the decimal point has been moved left
- If you’re not sure about moving the decimal point, use ‘estimation’ to get a good idea of the answer. This works particularly well with division place value questions. There’s a few examples in the videos attached.

If you’d like to ask for any more detail, or you’re not sure about anything, please do ask a question in the comments section.

The answer videos are given below, to try to shorten the video length (!), I’ve only answered questions 1, 10 and 15. You can download the complete worked solutions here.

All very best with your studies.
