How do you translate this sentence and what is the answer?

"Anota un número equivalente a 6 unidades y 8 diez-millares.”

Is there a better way to ask this question?

Thanks.

Spain-spanish
En el número 60.218 el 6 significa sesenta mil

Escribe un número equivalente a 6 unos y 8 diezmiles (no entiendo muy bien esta frase)

Escribe un número con un 7 en el sitio de los diezmiles

Escribe un número con un 7 en el sitio de los cientos de miles

Nubzilla, in order to have a chance to get a good answer, why not offer up more information? What the heck is this, a math quiz? And what are you trying to do with it? take the test? translate it? administer the test to spanish-speaking students? or to english-speaking students studying Spanish? does it come out of a book of quizzes? did you write it in an attempt to construct a quiz? you ask if there is a better way to phrase it--better for what purpose? to teach Spanish to 60-year-olds? to teach math to 6-year-olds? and on and on ....... There are amazingly friendly and helpful folks in this forum, but to get good answers you need to give them something to work with.

On first look it appears to say
Write a number equivalent to 6 units and 8 ten-thousands, which I guess would be 80,006. But who knows without some sort of context, especially since I'm not a native Spanish-speaker.
