Well digit 7 has different values
• Like it depends upon the digit place e.g.

In number 777,
the first 7 (from the left side) means 700,
the second 7 (middle one) means 70,
and the third 7 (right side) means 7.

• Another is positive 7 or negative 7

• 7 can have different values depending upon the units like 7 min or 7 hours.
And so on

The 7 would have a higher place value if it were in the ten thousands spot than if it were in the hundreds value spot.

In our usual method of representing numbers, any digit has place value. That is, the value changes depending on where it is relative to the decimal point. In the number 742.07, the digit 7 represents the value 700 in the left-most instance, and represents the value .07 in the right-most instance.

In various codes or mappings, the number 7 corresponds to the value assigned by the code or mapping. For example, 7 might represent the letter G in a mapping of counting numbers to letters of the alphabet. In a date representation, 7 might correspond to July or to the year 2007.

That is a good question.  I can't answer it.  I hope you get a good answer.  7 is an odd number and nothing will go into it.  Good luck.  I don't see how it could have a different value.   But in mathmatics anything is possible it seems like.

It depends on the place value. If 7 is in a different place it has a either higher or lower value.
