Rule of thumb: After you finished the hundreds place value you move to the next name of the place value. Example in thousands, we start with (ones) thousand, then (tens) ten thousands, then (hundreds) hundred thousand. After hundred thousand we do not write thousand thousand, we use a new term that is millions.
Millions | Thousands | Units | ||||||
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|
Hundreds | tens | Ones | Hundreds | tens | Ones | Hundreds | tens | Ones |
Write 8, 329, 154, 215 in words. It's good to note that digits are group inro three to denote (ones, tens, hundreds).
We start by reading from the rightmost side of the number:Hundreds | Tens | Ones | ||
2 | 1 | 5 | Units | |
1 | 5 | 4 | Thousands | |
3 | 2 | 9 | Millions | |
8 | Billions | |||
We can reconstruct the number in word as: 8 billion, three hundred twenty nine million, One hundred fifty four thousand, two hundred fifteen. |
Having a zero on the number might be confusing, thus for beginners using the table first is highly advisable.
Example write 2, 020, 001 in words
Hundreds | Tens | Ones | ||
0 | 0 | 1 | Units | |
0 | 2 | 0 | Thousands | |
2 | Millions | |||
We can reconstruct the number in word as: two million, twenty thousand, one. |
Writing numbers in numeral form is just the opposite of the procedures given above.
How do you write thirty five billion, one hundred eleven million, six hundred twenty thousand, two hundred five in Hindu-Arabic Numerals?.
Hundreds | Tens | Ones | ||
2 | 0 | 5 | Units | |
6 | 2 | 0 | Thousands | |
1 | 1 | 1 | Millions | |
3 | 5 | Billions | ||
That would be 35, 111, 620, 205 |
