## How to Write Numbers in words?

To write any number in the form of words, we have to check the place value. Let us learn step by step.

• The place value of ones place a number from 1 to 9 is written in words as, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine.
• The least number which is at tens place is 10, which is written in words as ten.
• The numbers from 11 to 19 is written in words as, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen and nineteen. And the next number is twenty.
• After twenty, the number follows the pattern in such a way that they are written in words as thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety.
• The preceding numbers are linked with these words and mentioned from one to nine. For example, twenty-one, twenty-two, etc.

Example: Write 33 in words.

Solution: In number 33, one’s place is occupied with 3, so there are 3 ones, and tens place is also occupied with 3, so there are 3 tens. So 3 tens and 3 ones are equal to 33. Or we can write, 33 as ‘thirty-three’ in words.
