# When 850 is written in expanded form why are there only two addends?

Because the addends come from only the '8' and the '5'. The zero works only

as a place-holder, so that you know what 'powers of ten' the 8 and the 5 are.

If the zero were not there, you would write "8 tens and 5 ones". With the zero

holding a place, you write "8 hundreds and 5 tens".
