How to convert numbers to words?

To convert numbers to letters and text, see the places below where you start placing your numbers from the right.

108 107 106 105 104 1000 100 10 1

Rules to convert numbers to words

To write the numbers in words.

  1. Always start from right.
  2. Write the numbers in English e.g 1 will be written as one, 2 as two e.t.c
  3. Places with the same suffixes like hundred thousand, ten thousand, and one thousand will be written jointly.
    For instance, consider you have the number 111000. It will be read as One hundred eleven thousand. It will not be read as one hundred thousand one ten thousand and one thousand. 
    Also, it doesn’t make sense.

International numeric words for numbers

The words lakh and Crore are Hindi numeric units but they are equally famous all around the world similarly million and billions are the units that are used internationally. The alternative words are

  1. Lakh = Hundred thousand
  2. Ten lakh = Million
  3. Crore = Ten Million
  4. Ten Crore = Hundred Million

In the international number system, a new word is introduced after three places from thousand onwards. Like 

  • 1000 is one thousand (1st place)
  • 10,000 is ten thousand (2nd place)
  • 100,1000 is a hundred thousand. (3rd place)

Now, a new word will be used for the digit places after a hundred thousand.

  • 1,000,000 is one million (1st place)
  • 10,000,000 is ten million (2nd place)
  • 100,000,000 is a hundred million (3rd place)

The new word is billion (109) and after that trillion (1012), quadrillion (1015), and quintillion (1015) respectively.
