You can give coins in exchange for goods: not many shops will accept base ten blocks! Also, base ten blocks come in powers of ten, coins have all sorts of other values: 2, 20, 25, 50 - depending on the currency.

meters

60 tens, 2 ones

Both work on the the basis of decimal counting. A number is broken up into parts such that each part can be represented by some integer times a power of ten. These are the terms in expanded notation while in base ten blocks, these integers are the number of blocks of different sizes that you need For example the number 2356 is (2*1000) + (3*100) + (5*10) + (6*1) which can also be written as (2*103) + (3*102) + (5*101) + (6*100) Note: 100 = 1, 101 = 10, 102 = 100, 103 = 1000. In terms of base ten blocks, you will have 2 blocks of 1000 3 blocks of 100 5 blocks of 10 and 6 blocks of 1
