## How to Write Numbers in Words

Below are the examples on how to write numbers in words -

### Solved Examples

Question 1: Convert the number 39 into words.
Solution:

The number given for converting into words form is 39.
The steps to convert the given number to words are as follows:
39 = ones place is occupied by 9 so there are 9 ones and tenth place is occupied by 3 so there are 3 tens.
Now, 3 tens = 30 and 9 ones = 9
Therefore the number 39 is represented as ‘thirty nine’ in words.

Question 2: Convert the number 124 into words
Solution:

The number given for converting into words form is 124.
The steps to convert the given number to words are as follows:
124 = ones place is occupied by 4 so there are 4 ones, tenth place is occupied by 2 so there are 2 tens and hundreds place is occupied by 1 so there are 1 hundred.
Now, 1 hundred = 100, 2 tens = 20 and 4 ones = 4
Therefore the number 124 is represented as ‘one hundred and twenty four’ in words.

Question 3: Convert the number 2609 into word.
