Place value is the value of place where a particular digit is placed, and face value is the value of digit itself (on the face of it). e.g. in number 4523 for digit 4 (face value is 4, and place value is 1000) for digit 5 (face value is 5, and place value is 500) and so on. Few people explain it wrongly and say place values are 4000 and 500 respectivly.

Place value is the value of where the number is written, and face value is the value of the number itself, e.g. the place value of 4000 is 1000, and the face value is 4
