When I am trying to find place value I first write out the place I am trying to find--which in this case hundred million--so to write one hundred million it would look like 100,000,000 so I start at the farthest right and count how many zeros are there until you get to where the 1 is which is 8 zeros. Next I look at the number I am trying to see what is that that place value and start at the number in the furthest right place, count over 8 places and the next number to the left will be that number--4! Sometimes a teacher may try to trick you so be careful--for example if they asked what number is in the ten million place for 40,876? The answer is 0 (there is always a zero before the other numbers so this number actually could be written as 000,040,876 to use my method)!
100,000,000 is 109, so you are looking for the 9th digit from 9,482,616,000, going from right to left. In this case, that digit is 4.
