# Say the numbers

### 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
