How does a digit in the ten thousands place compare to a digit in the thousands place?

Take this example

In situation (a) 10,000................10 is in the thousands place.

In situation (b) 1,000.................. 1 is in thousands place.

Summary: situation (a) is ten times situation (b) , therefore in the above statement a digit in the thousands place multiplied by ten equals a digit in the ten thousand place
