There are six possible numerals kids can make from the 3-digit 587. If kids will do well in math, they need to gain mastery of place value and multiplication facts. These are math concepts that kids need to master early to be able to cope with math.

How do kids proceed to make the six possible numerals from the 3-digit 587?

## How to make Six Possible Numerals

To make six possible numerals from any 3-digit numeral knowledge of place value will come handy.

Firstly, draw a place value table showing hundred’s, Tens and Ones (units).

Let’s proceed by placing 5 in the hundred’s place and 8 in the Tens place while 7 is places in the ones (Units) place. This is the first numeral kids can make from the 3-digit 587. How do kids make the second digit of the 3-digit 587?

This we can make by placing 5 in the hundred’s place, 7 in the Tens place and 8 in the ones (Units) place. Therefore, there are two numerals that can be made from the 3-digit 587 if we place 5 in the hundred’s place while interchanging 8 and 7 between the Tens and Ones (Units) place. See table below.

Secondly, to make the six possible numerals of the 3-digit 587, kids need to repeat the process by placing 8 in the hundred’s place; interchange 5 and 7 in the Tens and Ones (Units) place. To make the next four numerals of the 3-digit 587, we place 8 in the hundred’s place, 5 in the Tens place and 7 in the Ones (units) place.

Next, place 8 in the hundred’s place, 7 in the Tens place and 5 in the Ones (Units) place. Therefore, there are two numerals kids can make from the 3-digit 587 if they place 8 in the hundred’s place. The two numerals are shown below:

**Final step to make six possible numerals**

Finally, to make the six possible numerals of 587, we have to repeat the process by placing 7 in the hundred’s place while interchanging 5 and 8 in the Tens and Ones (Units) place. Now let us place 7 in the hundred’s place, 8 in the Tens place and 5 in the Tens place. Next, we place 7 in the hundreds place, 5 in the Tens place and 8 in the Ones (Units).

In essence, there are two numerals made from 587 if we place 7 in the hundred’s place. These two numerals are shown below.

So from the 3-digit 587, we have made six numerals in all. The lowest numeral of the six possible numerals made is **578.** The highest numeral of the six possible numerals made is **875**.

**Place Value**

Let us look at the places of the 3-digit 587.

In 587,

The place value of 5 = **5 hundred’s = 500**

Place value of 8 = **8 Tens = 80**

The place value of 7 = **7 Ones (Units) 7**

The numerals from 100 to 999 are 3-digit numerals. In essence, numerals 10 to 99 are 2-digit numerals while the numerals from 1 to 9 are 1-digit numerals.

Finally, I have tried to explain to you how to make six possible numerals from any 3-digit numeral.

**Homework **

Now, make the six possible numerals using the 3-digit 619. After you make the six possible numerals, determine the highest and lowest numerals.
