 Question from Chris, a parent: Write this number in expanded form 4 326 180 501 Thanks!!!

Hi Chris,

I am not exactly sure what you mean by expanded form but I'll take a guess. I am going to use a smaller number, $6 205.$

In expanded form I would write this as

$6 \times 1 000 + 2 \times 100 + 0 \times 10 + 5.$
