Say the numbers

SMALL NUMBERS (0-999)

For numbers between 0 and 999 do the following:

For numbers between 21 and 99 say number (multiple of 10) + last number

35 = thirty five

82 = eighty two

For numbers between 100 and 999 say first number + ’hundred’ + last two numbers

832 = eight hundred thirty two

564 = five hundred sixty four

 

LARGE NUMBERS (>999)

When saying large numbers, the following rules apply:

  • Use a hyphen to separate (10, 20, 30, etc.) words and (1, 2, 3, etc.) words
  • The words thousands, millions, billions, etc. are always used in singular
  • Use a comma to separate thousands, millions, etc. in numbers
Numbers between 1,000 and 999,999 = thousand

Say (number+’thousand’)+(number+’hundred’)+number

23,824 = twenty-three thousand eight hundred and twenty-four

Numbers between 1,000 and 9,900 that end in 00 say first two numbers+’hundred’

2,100 = twenty one hundred

Numbers between 1,000,000 and 999,999,999 = million

Say (number+’million’)+(number+’thousand’)+(number+’hundred’)+number

132,425,301 = one hundred thirty-two million four hundred twenty-five thousand three hundred and one

Numbers between 1,000,000,000 and 999,999,999,999 billion
