Number Names

In 1st grade, you have studied number names up to 20. Now here you will learn names of the larger number. You have already learned the number-names from 1 to 20 and also number-names of 30,40,50,60,70,80,90 and 100. Here we will use the number-names of these numbers.
Example 1: Write the 128 in words.
Solution :
First write the given number in expanded form and write the name of each number below it and then combine that name.

128 = 100                + 20        + 8
       = One Hundred + Twenty + Eight


So the number-name of 128 is
one hundred twenty eight.

Example 2: Write the 412 in words.
Solution :
First write the given number in expanded form and write the name of each number below it and then combine that name.

412 = 400                 + 10   + 2
       = Four Hundred + Ten + two


So the number-name of 128 is
Four hundred twelve .
(twelve is used for ten + 2)

Example 3: Write the 685 in words.
Solution :
First write the given number in expanded form and write the name of each number below it and then combine that name.

685 = 600               + 80       + 5
       = Six Hundred + Eighty + Five


So the number-name of 128 is
Six hundred eighty five .

Some times we have number-names and from that we have to write the number.
Example 1: Write in numeral of Two hundred twenty four.
Solution:
First write the number-name, below that write each numeral and then combine them together. For making it easy I am giving plus sign between each number.
 Two hundred +    twenty   + four
       200           +      20        + 4
  = 224

Example 2: Write in numeral of Three hundred fifty six.
Solution:
First write the number-name, below that write each numeral and then combine them together. For making it easy I am giving plus sign between each number.
Three hundred + fifty + six
300 + 50 + 6
= 356
