Naming Numbers Help
Our number system is called the Hindu-Arabic system or decimal system. It consists of 10 symbols or digits , 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, which are used to make our numbers. Each digit in a number has a place value . The place value names are shown in Fig. 1-1 .
In larger numbers, each group of three numbers (called a period ) is separated by a comma. The names at the top of the columns in Fig. 1-1 are called period names.
To name a number, start at the left and going to the right, read each group of three numbers separately using the period name at the comma. The word "ones" is not used when naming numbers .
Eighty-three million, two hundred sixty-one thousand, four hundred three.
Three hundred eight thousand, six hundred fifty-seven.
Four hundred thirteen billion, twenty-five.
Math Note: Other period names after trillions in increasing order are quadrillion, quintillion, sextillion, septillion, octillion, nonillion, and decillion.
