How to write numbers in words?

In this article, we discuss how to write numbers in words. In order to write any number in words, we must check the place value. The following steps will explain how to do this.

The place value of a number in one’s place (numbers from 1 to 9) is expressed in words as one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine.

The smallest number at the tens place is 10, which is written as ten.

From 11 to 19, these numbers are written as, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, and nineteen. And the next number is twenty.

Thereafter, the numbers follow a pattern such that they are written in words such as thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety, and so on.

Numbers one to nine are linked with these words. Hence, we get twenty-one, twenty-two, etc.
