KING'S CHESS REWARD

Legend has it, that a long time ago a Chinese king had a faithful and clever servant who invented the game of chess. The king asked him what he would like as his reward for this wonderful game. The servant said that he wanted a grain of rice on the first square and two on the second square and so forth doubling the grains of rice on each square. For this example we are using the number of grains of rice through 27 squares on the chessboard which would total 67,108,864 grains of rice.

It would take 3 large bags of rice to equal the amount of rice from the first 27 squares of the chessboard.


Write 67,108,864 three different ways then put them in a place value chart.
1. Short word form: 67 million, 108 thousand, 864.
2. Expanded form: 60,000,000 + 7,000,000+100,000+8,000+800+60+4.
3. Standard form: 67,108,864.
