Given a number I e is 32675149, given numbers are local values.
9-1s place.
4-is 10th place.
7-is 10, 000 place.
So it will write 9, 40, 100, 5000, 10, 000.
This are face value. Difference.
B\w face value and local value.
Than 70000-7=69993.

Local value depends upon place (location to remember easy way) so here local value of 7 is 10000's place so 7*10000=70000

While the face value is actual value or count of the number here 7

and their difference is 70000-7 = 69993.

Given a number i.e is 32675149, given numbers are local values.
9 - is 1st place.
4 - is 10th place.
7 - is 10, 000 place.
So it will write 9, 40, 100, 5000, 10, 000.

This are face value. Difference B\w face value and local value.

Than 70000-7 = 69993.

What is value of the number 245675 correct to 2 significant figures? Please explain how it works.

The face value of a digit is the digit itself, at whatever place it may be. It is unchangeable and definite.

But local value changes according to the digit's place.
