# Four Digit Numbers – Definition

Four Digit Numbers have four digits. Digits are positioned from right to left at one’s place, ten’s place, hundred’s place, and thousand’s place. The first four-digit number is 1000. The next 9000 numbers are all four-digit numbers, for example, 2465,6789, etc.

### How Four-Digit Numbers are Formed?

When we multiply a unit digit with 1000 four-digit numbers are formed. For every Four-Digit Number, the fourth digit from the left represents thousands places, the third digit represents hundreds, the second digit represents tens, and the first represents ones. we can have a four-digit number by adding one to the largest three-digit number. For example: 9834, 2753, 5900.

For example: In the four-digit number 8673

3 is at the unit/one’s place having its value 3 × 1 = 3
7 is at ten’s place having its value 7 × 10 = 70
6 is at hundred’s place having its value 6× 100 = 600
8 is at the thousand’s place having its value 8 × 1000 = 8000
So, 8673 = 8000 + 600 + 70 + 3
8673 is the short form whereas 8000 + 600 + 70 + 3 is the expanded form.

It is read as ‘Eight  Thousand Six Hundred Seventy-Three’.

A comma is marked in Four-digit numbers in numerals before writing the three digits from the right. The digit of thousands is at the left. Since Four-Digit Numbers are longer, the comma helps us to make the number more readable.

As in 7682, a comma is marked before 682, the only digit left is 7, whose value is 7000. The number will be written in numerals as 7682 and written in words as seven thousand six hundred eighty-two.
