How to Write Numbers in Words? Steps.

Learning counting in words in English is necessary, especially if you are learning English as a second language. Writing numbers in words in English can be handled well if you keep the following steps in mind:

Learn to write the numbers 1 to 9

  • 1 = one
  • 2 = two
  • 3 = three
  • 4 = four
  • 5 = five
  • 6 = six
  • 7 = seven
  • 8 = eight
  • 9 = nine

Once you memorise them, writing the more significant numbers gets simple.

Pick up numbers from 10-19

  • 10 = ten
  • 11 = eleven
  • 12 = twelve
  • 13 = thirteen
  • 14 = fourteen
  • 15 = fifteen
  • 16 = sixteen
  • 17 = seventeen
  • 18 = eighteen
  • 19 = nineteen

Other than 11 and 12, the other numbers have “teen” attached.
16= six+teen
17= seven+teen

Remember the multiples of 10
The multiples of ten, other than ten, end in “ty”:

  • 20 = twenty
  • 30 = thirty
  • 40 = forty
  • 50 = fifty
  • 60 = sixty
  • 70 = seventy
  • 80 = eighty
  • 90 = ninety

Figure out the place value:
You can communicate the digit value based on its position in a number. You may check the following example to understand it better. The place value of 1 is shown in different numbers.


  • 1 = ones/units place
  • 10 = tens place
  • 100 = hundreds of place

Writing 2 and 3 digit numbers:
To write the number names for 2 and 3 digits numbers, take the digits in the ones/units and tens and place them as a single unit. For the digit at the hundreds place, add a hundred next to the digit’s name. Spell all the addends and combine their names with writing the number.


226= 200+26 =Two hundred twenty-six. 
Similarly, the expanded form of 567= 500+60+7 = Five hundred sixty-seven

To write the number names of multiples of 100, between 100 and 100, write the digit name followed by hundred”. 

400= four hundred
600 = six hundred

Writing Long Numbers

Writing long numbers can seem intimidating, considering the numerals are more. To write long numbers, you should consider the following steps:

Look at the place value of the digits.

  • 1 → the ones place.
  • 10 → the tens place.
  • 100 → the hundreds place.
  • 1,000 → the thousands place.
  • 10,000 → the ten thousands place.
  • 100,000 → the hundred thousands place.
  • 1000,000 → the millions place.
  • 10,000,000 → the ten millions place.
  • 100,000,000 → the hundred millions place.

Once the place value is clear, writing the numbers in words in English becomes less daunting. 

Use separators: place commas or points as separators after every three digits starting from the right side.

Example: 1567340 is to be written as 1,567,340

Spot the last two digits: Write it down as you would write a two-digit number in words.

Example: 1,567,340

The last two digits are 40: forty

The hundreds place: Next, write down the digit in the hundred’s position with the name of the digit followed by ‘hundred’.

Example: In number 1,567,340, 3 is at the hundreds place. So we write it as three hundred.

The last three digits read as three hundred and forty.

The thousands place: The next set of numbers is in the thousands place value, i.e. hundred thousands, ten thousands and one thousand.

Example: Write 5 in 567 as five hundred and 67 as sixty-seven followed by thousands

The number now reads as five hundred sixty-seven thousand three hundred and forty.

The millions place:The next set of digits is in the millions place, where it is hundred millions, tens millions and a million. Since there is just 1 digit, we write it as one million.

Example: Now our number will read as One million five hundred sixty-seven thousand three hundred and forty.
