WRITING NUMBERS

NC: Read, write, order and compare numbers up to 10,000,000 and determine the value of each digit.

Numbers can be written using both digits and words. The more digits, the bigger the number.

First, you need to know which place value column your digits are in:

To write a number from words to digits, break the numbers down into each place value part.

Example: Write in digits: three million, four hundred and two thousand, six hundred and fifty-five.
3,000,000 + 402,000 + 655 = 3,402,655

Example: Write in words: 69471013.

So that’s sixty-nine million, four hundred and seventy-one thousand and thirteen.
