|The following table shows the names of numbers. These numbers are sometimes called cardinal numbers. You can see from the numbers in this table how to form all other numbers.|
Expressing Numbers in English:: If a number is in the range 21 to 99, and the second digit is not zero, we should write the number as two words separated by a hyphen:
:: Numbers over 100 are generally written in figures. However if you want to say them aloud or want to write them in words rather than figures you put 'and' in front of the number expressed by the last two figures. For example:
:: Numbers between 1000 and 1,000,000 is usually said or written in words as:
Four-figure numbers ending in 00 can also be said or written as a number of hundreds. For example, 1800 can be said or written as "eighteen hundred"
:: If the number 1963 is being used to identify something, it is said as "one nine six three". We always say each figure separately like this with telephone numbers. If a telephone number contains a double number, we use the word "double":
:: Saying years. We normally say a year in two parts. In the case of years ending in "00", we say the second part in "hundred":
There are two ways of saying years ending in "01" to "09" before 2000. For example: "1901" can be said as "nineteen oh one" or "nineteen hundred and one". The year 2000 is read "two thousand", 2006 "two thousand and six" (AmE: two thousand six). Post-2010 dates are often said as normal (2010 would be "twenty ten").
:: Flight numbers. We pronounce a flight number in two parts or digit-by-digit. For example:
:: Expressing millions.
Remember: The British use 'and' before tens and ones but the Americans usually leave the 'and' out.

Writing full stops and commas in numbersUse a full stop (.) to separate the main part of a number from the decimal part. 3.062 means 'three point nought six two'.
Say point to refer to the full stop. You can use a comma (,) in large numbers to separate the hundreds, thousands, and millions. 3,062 means 'three thousand and sixty-two'. In British English, spaces are sometimes used instead of commas (3 062).
Remember: Speakers of some other languages use (,) and (.) in the opposite way - the commas for the decimals and the points for thousands, millions, etc.
