Answers to Questions

How to write a number in whole letters?

To write a digit or a number in letters in English, numbers have to be written following some easy rules (with few exceptions, see below).

Example: 123 is written one hundred (and) twenty-three (the word and can be omitted)

dCode applies million, billion, trillion, etc. for big numbers names up to 10^63.

Words hundred, thousand, etc. are indeclinable (no plural form). There is an uninflected plural of numerals based on old English and today they did not change form.

Example: 1000 : one thousand
2000 : two thousand (no final s)

Example: 3000000 : three millions
4003002001 : four billion three million two thousand (and) one

Hyphens are used for composed numbers inferior to 100.

The use of hyphens can be tolerated with other numbers (ie. superior to 100). It has the advantages to delimitate the number in a sentence.

Example: One hundred and one half for 100 + 1/2

Example: One-hundred-and-one half for 101 * 1/2
