Lesson 2: Numbers Written with Words

Numbers are often represented with words instead of symbols, and sometimes a test question is designed to see if you can recognize numbers in words.  Additionally, in formal writing it is usually proper to spell out numbers that are less than 100.  When writing a check, it is also necessary to know how to spell out numbers in words.

Don't forget to watch the embedded YouTube video clip for this lesson at the bottom of the page.

This is a topic that should be memorized.  Make sure that you learn the proper way to spell out numbers.  This list has some sample entries that will help you.  For practice, write out some of the numbers that are skipped.  For now, don't get hung up on the large numbers in the list below.  You'll learn about very large numbers in later lessons.
