Using words to write short numbers makes your writing look clean and classy. In handwriting , words are easy to read and hard to mistake for each other. While you may not need to write longer numbers as words that much, it's still helpful practice. This wikiHow will explain how you can write numbers as words.

## Writing 1 to 999

- 11 = eleven
- 12 = twelve
- 13 = thirteen
- 14 = fourteen
- 15 = fifteen
- 16 = sixteen
- 17 = seventeen
- 18 = eighteen
- 19 = nineteen

- 20 = twenty
- 30 = thirty
- 70 = seventy
- 80 = eighty
- 90 = ninety

- 42 is written with two numbers: 4 2.
- 2 is in the ones place, so this just equals 2. Write this as two .
- 4 is in the tens place, so this is actually 40. Write this as forty .
- Write the two parts together: forty-two . Don't forget the - sign between them.

- 100 = one hundred
- 200 = two hundred
- 300 = three hundred (and so on)

- 120 = one hundred twenty
- 405 = four hundred five
- 556 = five hundred fifty-six
- 999 = nine hundred ninety-nine

- 21 = twenty-one
- 37 = thirty-seven
- 49 = forty-nine
- 255 = two hundred fifty-five
- 876 = eight hundred seventy-six

## Writing Long Numbers

- 1 → the ones place.
- 1 0 → the tens place.
- 1 00 → the hundreds place.
- 1 ,000 → the thousands place.
- 1 0,000 → the ten thousands place.
- 1 00,000 → the hundred thousands place.
- 1 000,000 → the millions place.
- 1 0,000,000 → the ten millions place.
- 1 00,000,000 → the hundred millions place.

- For example, turn 458735 into 458,735.
- Write 1510800 as 1,510,800.
- You can use a period instead if that's how people in your country write numbers.

- 5,467,3 50 looks hard, but don't worry. Start with just the 50 at the end. Write this as fifty .

- In 5,467, 3 50, the 3 is the hundreds place. Write this as ' three hundred .
- Now we have ' three hundred fifty .

- In 5, 467 ,350, the 467 is the thousands chunk.
- Write the 4 as four hundred.
- Write the 67 as sixty-seven.
- Write the whole chunk as four hundred sixty-seven thousand .
- Now we have four hundred sixty-seven thousand, three hundred fifty .

- In 5 ,467,350, we only have a 5 in the millions place.
- Write this as five million .
- Finish writing the number: five million, four hundred sixty-seven thousand, three hundred fifty.

## Numerals in various writing systems

Here are the numerals used in various writing systems from around the world. The numbers section includes numbers in these and many other languages.

Some writing systems, such as Greek and Cyrillic, do not have their own set of numerals. They may use letters to represent numbers, and/or use numerals from another writing sytem.

Please note : You may need to download and install some fonts in order to see some of the numerals.

The numerals referred to here as 'Arabic' and 'Urdu' are those used when writing those languages. The Urdu numerals are also known as 'East Arab' numerals and differ slightly from those used in Arabic. In Arabic they are known as "Indian numbers" (أرقام هندية arqa-m hindiyyah).

The numerals 1, 2, 3, etc. are also known as Arabic numerals, or Hindu-Arabic numerals, Indian numerals, Hindu numerals, European numerals, and Western numerals. These numerals where first used in India in about 400 BC, were later used in Persia, then were brought to Europe by the Arabs. Hence the name "Arabic numerals".

## How to Write Decades as Words and Numerals

By Erin Wright

## Should We Write Decades as Numerals or Words?

As a general rule, decades can always be written as complete numerals:

Dallas and big hair were popular in the 1980s .

The Brady Bunch and bell bottoms were popular in the 1970s .

In fact, The Associated Press Stylebook (AP style) doesn’t allow decades to be written as words. 1 The Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago style), on the other hand, approves of decades written as words or numerals as long as the decades are identifiable through the surrounding content (so your readers don’t mistake the 1980s for the 1880s). 2

Dallas and big hair were popular in the eighties .

The Brady Bunch and bell bottoms were popular in the seventies .

Chicago includes the caveat that the first decade (years 00 through 09) of a century shouldn’t be written as numerals because it may be confused with the entire century (e.g., the 1700s could be mistaken for the eighteen century). 3 Although this caveat isn’t mentioned in our other primary style guides , we should all consider following Chicago on this issue to prevent confusion.

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA style) doesn’t address decade formatting, but we can assume that APA followers should write decades as numerals because the manual recommends using numerals for all numbers greater than nine unless they start a sentence. In addition, the APA uses a decade written as a numeral in an example for another topic. 4

## Should We Write Decades as Abbreviated Numerals?

All the style guides mentioned above accept (or are silent on) decades formatted as abbreviated numerals prefaced by an apostrophe:

Game shows grew to prominence in the 1950s and ’ 60s .

Swing music was enjoyed in the 1930s and ’40s .

However, The Chicago Manual of Style (Chicago) indicates that decades written as abbreviated numerals (the ’60s) are less formal than complete numerals (the 1960s). 5 Therefore, writers who follow Chicago or are concerned with formality should use complete numerals for decades in reports, proposals, and other professional documents where abbreviations may be inappropriate.

Pro Tip: If Microsoft Word inserts an opening quotation mark (‘) instead of a curly apostrophe (’) before a decade written as an abbreviated numeral (the ’20s), use the Symbol dialog box to insert a right single quotation mark, which is a curly apostrophe.

The right single quotation mark is located in the Symbol dialog box’s Symbols tab under the General Punctuation subset. Visit the following tutorials for more information on the Symbol dialog box:

## 7 Simple Steps to Becoming a Writer After 60

Second Chapters. Third Acts. Call it what you will, your sixties are a time to recreate, reclaim and often reinvent yourself. You may be retired or partially so. You did a good job with the kids and they are carving out their own lives now. Maybe you’ve left a marriage and find yourself single again.

Whatever the circumstances, the true confession that I hear so many times is, “I have always wanted to write.” And now is your time to do so .

## Becoming a Writer After Sixty is Easier Than You Think

At sixty-something you have far more experience and cred under your belt than you did when you were in your twenties. You’ve had time and cause to think about life, reflect upon its meaning and chances are, have hard-won wisdom to share.

Maybe you want to tell your life story or maybe you want to tell stories about the life around you.

I am a fiction writer. I study, experiment with and work the long-form format. And, though I do not yet have a published novel, I do have bragging rights for signing with a New York City literary agent this past year who hopefully will give me a good chance of selling my first novel.

But, there is more than one way to be a writer – and more than one way to tell a story.

If you want to write, it’s likely because you already know how. You were “that” kid in English who excelled at description and nuance when it came to short stories or essay. Or you made it through the heartbreak of unrequited love in your teens by penning poetry.

Whatever kind of writer you are, your sixties provide you with a somewhat quieter lifestyle – and that makes the perfect environment for being a writer.

So, where do you start if you haven’t done much in the way of writing since high school? Here are 7 ways to reinvent yourself as a writer:

## Read Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg

This twenty-year-old writing classic has provided inspiration to thousands of aspiring writers. By following Goldberg’s free-writing exercises and prompts, you’ll start to discover not only your voice, but what’s important to you.

What is it that you want to write about? What lights you up? Makes your heart sing? These are always great starting points for creating a writing project that matters to you.

If you are really into this writing thing and want to go the novel route, the resources I recommend are: Story Engineering, by Larry Brooks, and Robert McKee’s Story.

## Create a Writing Corner

Find space in a room where you can have a writer’s desk or comfy chair. Put out the symbols of writing on your desk and shelves. I have a few reference books on my desk and a stack of yellow legal pads, along with a precious cup of writing pens. The cup was made by my nephew David in a pottery class and gifted to my husband and I one Christmas. I absconded with the cup!

Even though I write on a computer, I do all of my preparation on yellow legal pads. Some people prefer to write in notebooks or nicely bound journals. If you are going to share your writing, however, you may want to enter it into a computer for posterity’s sake.

## Decide On a Writing Schedule and Stick To It

I write from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. every day. It’s important to note that I worked up to that. For heaven’s sake don’t start with three hours a day! You will most likely set yourself up for failure.

Instead start with twenty minutes a day and let it ride. Once you’ve done that for awhile and feel comfortable with your voice and are discovering what you like to write about, then start to increase your time.

## Start a Blog

It’s a little like the family dog, messy and joyful. Blogs are a great way to put your writing into the world. Invite your friends and family to follow it so you can have some readers right away.

You can post as frequently or as infrequently as you like.

Maybe your thing is grandchildren and you write about yours a couple of times a week, or your garden, your kitchen or your volunteer work. This is a good first foray into the world of writing. My personal preference is WordPress for creating and maintaining a blog.

## Create a Family Newsletter

You can sign up for a newsletter account through MailChimp, Campaign Monitor or a wide variety of others. These free accounts will allow you to send mass emails up to 2,000 recipients before you have to change to a paid account.

A monthly family and friends newsletter, replete with personal pictures, is a great way to document life for the ones you love.

## Write a Book

There are all different kinds of books, fiction, nonfiction, short story collection, memoir, just to name a few. If you want to write a book, work your way up to it first by writing short stories or short essays. It’s a lot to take on an entire book when you’re first getting started.

If memoir speaks to you, I suggest reading Jennifer Lauck’s memoir, Black Bird to see how she did it. I wish I had my grandmother’s memoir or my mother’s. There are so many questions I had yet to ask .

## Keep a Journal

Personal journals that reflect your thoughts, feeling and observations of the world are a great place to build your writing chops. Commit to writing daily and carry a journal in your purse, so that when you are sitting in a park or having a cup of coffee somewhere, you can pull out your journal and write about the world around you. I like to think of this as “contemplative writing.”

No matter what kind of writing you choose to do, whether you pick one or dabble in several, know that the world will be a better place with your words and stories in it.

Thank you so much for this. I’m on the cusp of 60 and presently trying to decide on making that leap, “Turning Pro” as novelist Steven Pressfield says in his excellent The War of Art.

## Factors of 60

Factors of 60 are those numbers that divide 60 completely without leaving any remainder. There are 12 factors of 60 among which 60 is the biggest factor and 2, 3 and 5 are its prime factors. The prime factorization of 60 can be done by multiplying all its prime factors such that the product is 60. Let us learn about all factors of 60, the prime factorization of 60, and the factor tree of 60 in this article.

## What are the Factors of 60?

The factors of 60 can be listed as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60. According to the definition of factors, the factors of 60 are those numbers that divide 60 without leaving any remainder. In other words, if two numbers are multiplied and the product is 60, then the numbers are the factors of 60. It means that 60 is completely divisible by all these numbers. Apart from these, 60 also has negative factors that can be listed as, -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -10, -12, -15, -20, -30, and -60.. For negative factors, we need to multiply a negative factor by a negative factor, like, (-20) × (-3) = 60.

## How to Find the Factors of 60?

Factorization of a number means writing the number as a product of its factors . The multiplication method is the most commonly used method to find the factors of a number. Let us find the factors of 60 using multiplication.

## Factors of 60 using Multiplication

Let us find the factors of 60 using the multiplication method using the following steps.

- Step 1: In order to find the factors of 60 using multiplication, we need to check what pairs of numbers multiply to get 60, so we need to divide 60 by natural numbers starting from 1 and go on till 9. We need to make a note of those numbers that divide 60 completely.
- Step 2: The numbers that completely divide 60 are known as its factors. We write that particular number along with its pair and make a list as shown in the figure given above. As we check and list all the numbers up to 9, we automatically get the other pair factor along with it. For example, starting from 1, we write 1 × 60 = 60, and 2 × 30 = 60 and so on. Here, (1, 60) forms the first pair, (2, 30) forms the second pair and the list goes on as shown. So, as we write 1 as the factor of 60, we get the other factor as 60; and as we write 2 as the factor of 60, we get 30 as the other factor. Like this, we get all the factors.
- Step 3 : After the list is noted, we get all the factors of 60 starting from 1 up there, coming down and then we go up again up to 60. This gives us a complete list of all the factors of 60 as shown in the figure given above.

Therefore, the factors of 60 can be listed as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60. Now, let us learn about the prime factorization of 60.

## Prime Factorization of 60

Prime factorization is a way of expressing a number as a product of its prime factors. The prime factors of a number are those factors that are prime numbers . The prime factorization of 60 can be done using the following steps. Observe the figure given below to understand the prime factorization of 60.

- Step 1: The first step is to divide the number 60 with its smallest prime factor. We know that a prime factor is a prime number which is a factor of the given number. So, with the help of divisibility rules, we find out the smallest factor of the given number. Here, we get 2. Therefore, 2 is the smallest prime factor of 60. So, 60 ÷ 2 = 30
- Step 2: We need to repeatedly divide the quotient by 2 until we get a number that is no more divisible by 2. So, we divide 30 again by 2 which is 30 ÷ 2 = 15
- Step 3: Now, 15 is not completely divisible by 2, so, we proceed with the next prime factor of 60, which is 3. So we will divide 15 by 3, that is, 15 ÷ 3 = 5
- Step 5: Since 5 is a prime number it will be divided by 5 and we will get 1 as the quotient.
- Step 6: We need not proceed further as we have obtained 1 as our quotient.
- Step 7: Therefore, the prime factorization of 60 is expressed as 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 2 2 × 3 × 5; where 2, 3, and 5 are prime numbers and the prime factors of 60.

Therefore, the prime factors of 60 are 2, 3, and 5 and the Prime factorization of 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

## Factor Tree of 60

We can also find the prime factors of 60 using a factor tree . The factor tree of 60 can be drawn by factorizing 60 until we reach its prime factors. These factors are split and written in the form of the branches of a tree. The final factors are circled and are considered to be the prime factors of the 60. Let us find the prime factors of 60 using the following steps and the factor tree given below.

- Step 1: Split 60 into two factors. Let us take 2 and 30.
- Step 2: Observe these factors to see if they are prime or not.
- Step 3: Since 2 is a prime number we circle it as one of the prime factors of 60. We move on to 30, which is a composite number and further split it into more factors. In other words, we repeat the process of factorizing the composite numbers and splitting it into branches until we reach a prime number.
- Step 4: After factorizing 30, we get 2 and 15. So, we circle 2 because it is a prime number and we split 15 into 3 and 5. At this stage, we are left with prime numbers, 2, 3, and 5. We circle them since we know that they cannot be factorized further. This is the end of the factor tree.
- Step 5: Therefore, the prime factors of 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

Note: It should be noted that there can be different factor trees of 60. For example, we can start by splitting 60 into 3 and 20. Since 3 is already a prime number, we circle it and then we split 20 further into 2 and 10. Again, we get 2 as the prime number, so we circle it and split 10 into 2 and 5. Finally, we can observe the same prime factors, that is, 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5

The factors of 60 can be written in pairs. This means that the product of the pair factors of 60 is always 60. The factors of 60 in pairs can be written as shown in the table given below:

It is possible to have negative pair factors as well because the product of two negative numbers also gives a positive number. Let us have a look at the negative pair factors of 60.

The following points explain some features of the pair factors of 60.

- The pair factors of the number 60 are whole numbers in pairs that are multiplied to get the original number, i.e., 60.
- Pair factors could be either positive or negative but they cannot be fractions or decimal numbers.

The positive pair factors of 60 are as follows: (1, 60), (2, 30), (3, 20), (4, 15), (5, 12), and (6, 10). The negative pair factors of 60 are (-1, -60), (-2, -30), (-3, -20), (-4, -15), (-5, -12), and (-6, -10)

Important Notes

- 60 is a composite number because it has factors other than 1 and itself.
- Factors of 60 are those numbers that divide 60 completely without leaving any remainder .
- 60 has a total of 12 factors: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, and 60.
- There is a trick to calculate the total number of factors of a number. For example, 60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 2 2 × 3 × 5. We get the prime factorizations of 60 as 2 2 × 3 × 5. Just add one (1) to the exponents 2, 1 and 1 individually and multiply their sums. (2 + 1) × (1 + 1) × (1 + 1) = 3 × 2 × 2 = 12. This means 60 has 12 factors in all.

Points to remember

Let us recollect the list of the factors, the negative factors, and the prime factors of 60.

- Factors of 60: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30 and 60
- Negative Factors of 60: -1, -2, -3, -4, -5, -6, -10, -12, -15, -20, -30 and -60
- Prime Factors of 60: 2, 3, 5
- Prime Factorization of 60: 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 = 2 2 × 3 × 5

## How to Write the Decade

Use numerals for decades in formal texts (“the 1990s”). In informal and creative writing, you may use either words or figures (“the nineties” or “the 1990s”). Names of decades may be abbreviated in informal writing (“the ’90s”).

- Anita’s thesis discusses the chat-room culture of the 1990s .
- Overalls first became popular in the nineties .
- Here are the top rock songs of the ’90s .

An apostrophe before the s is unnecessary, though not incorrect (“1990s” or “1990’s”).

## What years make a decade?

A decade is a 10-year period . A specific decade (e.g., the 1990s) is generally considered to begin with a year ending in zero. Decades may be written in various styles: in words or numerals, with an apostrophe or without, and with or without the century specified.

- Online businesses first became popular in the late nineties .
- Pagers were ubiquitous in the 1990s .
- Alternative rock became mainstream in the ’90s .

In this article, we discuss how decades are shown in formal and other writing, and how to write decades correctly in various styles.

## Words vs. numerals

Write decades in numerals instead of words in formal writing (such as a thesis or a report). Specify both century and decade. No apostrophe is necessary before the s that appears after the numerals.

- We conducted a survey of those vaccinated in the 1980s . pronounced “nineteen eighties”
- The boomers were the generation that entered adulthood in the 1960s and 1970s .
- The 1890s were a decade of transition and change.
- There are many challenges to overcome in the 2020s .

In casual communication, where context makes the century clear, the numbers denoting the century may be omitted.

- She loves the music of the ’80s and ’90s .

Decades may be considered either singular or plural .

- Correct: The 1970s was a time of great social change.
- Correct: The 1970s were the best years of her life.

In creative and other writing, decades are often written in words (although they may also be shown using numerals). Use the article the before the decade. The century is generally omitted.

- She was a child of the eighties .
- In the early sixties , my mother worked as a journalist.
- The fifties was a time of prosperity and excess.
- Around the world, people welcomed the twenties at midnight, mercifully unaware of what was to come.

## Capitalization

Don’t capitalize the names of decades.

- Poor: China saw healthy economic growth in the Nineties . Better: China saw healthy economic growth in the nineties .
- Poor: The Twenties were marked by multiple financial crises around the world. Better: The twenties were marked by multiple financial crises around the world.

## Apostrophe before s

An apostrophe before the s in a decade is generally omitted in formal writing.

- In our study, we investigate how digital communication of the 2000s and 2010s has affected international politics.
- Those born in the 1980s dreamed constantly of space travel.
- The 1930s was a period of great political turmoil.
- Globalization began in the 1850s .

Most style guides , like the Chicago Manual of Style and the AP Stylebook , recommend omitting the apostrophe in names of decades and other plural words. This is a matter of style rather than grammar. If you are editing a piece of creative writing, respect the preference of the writer.

In informal writing, an apostrophe may or may not be used, depending on preference. Note that using one is unnecessary, though not incorrect.

- The band began to experiment with other instruments in the late 1980’s .
- The 2010’s will be remembered as the decade of social media, avocado toast, bubble tea, and unicorn cakes.
- The 1990’s were a great time to be young.

Don’t use an apostrophe in the name of a decade written in words.

- Incorrect: Here are some fashion tips from the eightie’s . Incorrect: Here are some fashion tips from the eighties’ . Correct: Here are some fashion tips from the eighties .

## The decade abbreviated

In informal writing, names of decades may be abbreviated by using an apostrophe.

- In today’s episode, we discuss forgotten cars from the ’60s and ’70s . instead of “the 1960s and 1970s”
- The band became briefly popular in the ’90s .
- James’s family moved to Canada in the late ’80s .

Use an apostrophe, not an opening quotation mark to mark the omission of the century from the name of the decade.

- Incorrect: Sitcoms came into their own in the ‘90s . Correct: Sitcoms came into their own in the ’90s .

## The before decade

Use the definite article the before the name of a decade, whether written in numerals or words.

- She is a child of the nineties .
- This playlist has all my favorite songs from the ’80s .
- Bell-bottoms were a popular style of trousers in the 1970s .

The article the may not be necessary when the decade is used as an adjective instead of a noun .

- She’s a nineties kid at heart.
- Maya loves listening to ’80s rock .
- This style is so 1970s .

## How to pronounce

To say the name of a decade written in numerals—for example, the 2010s—divide it into two parts: say the first two and then the second two digits as if they were individual numbers.

- 1980s = nineteen eighties
- 1990s = nineteen nineties
- 2010s = twenty tens, not two thousand tens
- 2020s = twenty twenties

An exception is the first decade of the twenty-first century. The 2000s is pronounced “two thousands,” not “twenty hundreds.”

## The first decade: Aughties , Noughties , or 2000s ?

In informal American usage, the first decade of the twenty-first century (the years 2000–2009) is often called the aughties or the aughts . The British generally refer to this decade as the noughties .

- American: When the aughties weren’t horrifying, they were tough. — “Arthur magazine, a counterculture favorite, returns to print,” Washington Post (December 25, 2012)
- British: Justin Timberlake has formally apologised for his fashion sense during his time with NSYNC in the noughties . — “All the times Justin Timberlake’s outfits seemed right, but were so wrong,” BBC News (February 9, 2017)

The terms noughties and aughties come from the words nought and aught , which mean zero .

In formal prose, the first decade of a century should not be written the same way as other decades. For example, while it is clear which time period the term “1920s” refers to, the “1900s” could mean either the decade from 1900 to 1909 or the entire twentieth century. Consider making it clear to your readers that you mean the decade and not the century.

- Confusing: These photographs show that exercise was taken seriously even in the 1900s . The years 1900–1909 or 1900–1999? Clearer: These photographs show that exercise was taken seriously even in the first decade of the twentieth century .

Of course, if context makes it clear that you’re referring to the decade and not the century, there is no need to clarify.

- The scientific spirit of the 1890s saw itself carried into the 1900s and 1910s .

Also keep in mind that until the twenty-first century has passed and become part of history, people are unlikely to find the term “2000s” confusing.

## The second decade: Tens , teens , or 2010s ?

The second decade of a century is generally written in numerals rather than words: 1910s, 2010s, etc. Some people do informally call the second decade the tens or the teens . Avoid such usage in formal texts.

- Children’s fashions changed significantly in the 1910s .
- The 2010s saw populism rise across the globe.

## Share this article

Decades may be written in either numerals or words. An apostrophe may be used to abbreviate the name of a decade.

In formal texts, write decades in numerals rather than words.

An apostrophe before the s in the name of a decade, while not incorrect, is generally omitted in formal writing.

“The 1900s” could refer to the first decade or to the entire century. Prefer to make the meaning clear to your reader.

## Expanded form of a Number

We know that the number written as sum of the place-values of its digits is called the expanded form of a number.

In expanded form of a number, the number is shown according to the place values of its digits.

This is shown here:

In 2385, the place values of the digits are given below:

Hence, 2385 = 2000 + 300 + 80 + 5

Thus, 2000 + 300 + 80 + 5 is the expanded form of 2385.

Again,

Expanded Notation

The digits of the numerals 394381, 163845, 583927 are entered in the place value chart as given below.

(i) What is the expanded form of the number 394381?

394381 = 3 lakhs + 9 ten thousands + 4 thousands + 3 hundreds +

= 3 × 100000 + 9 × 10000 + 4 × 1000 + 3 × 100 + 8 × 10 +

1 × 1

= 300000 + 90000 + 4000 + 300 + 80 + 1

(ii) What is the expanded form of the number 163845?

163845 = 1 lakhs + 6 ten thousands + 3 thousands + 8 hundreds +

4 tens + 5 ones

= 1 × 100000 + 6 × 10000 + 3 × 1000 + 8 × 100 + 4 × 10 +

= 5 × 1

= 100000 + 60000 + 3000 + 800 + 40 + 5

(iii) What is the place value of all the digits of number 583927?

Given the expanded form of a number, we can also write the numeral in the standard form.

500000 + 80000 + 3000 + 900 + 20 + 7

Expanded form of a number to standard form.

(iv) 3000 + 200 + 40 + 8 = 3248

(v) 7 ten thousands + 4 thousands + 2 hundreds + 3 tens + 8 ones

= 74238

Solved Examples on Expanded Form of a Number:

1. Write the expanded form for the number 70,39,41,295.

Therefore, the expanded form of the number 70,39,41,295 is 70,00,00,000 + 00000000 + 3000000+ 900000 + 40000 + 1000 + 200 + 90 + 5.

2. Find the expanded form of 453169.

Place values of digits 453169

So, 453169 = 400000 + 50000 + 3000 + 100 + 60 + 9

3. Write the number in figures and then in words for the following expanded form:

(i) 80000 + 8000 + 500 + 50 + 7 Solution: 80000 + 8000 + 500 + 50 + 7

= 88557 (in figures)

Eighty eight thousand five hundred fifty seven (in words)

(ii) 100000 + 30000 + 2000 + 10 + 6 Solution: 100000 + 30000 + 2000 + 10 + 6 = 132016 (in figures)

One hundred thirty two thousand sixteen (in words) We can write the expanded form of numbers in different ways.

4. Write in expanded form: (i) 28369 Write as:

(a) 20000 + 8000 + 300 + 60 + 9

(c) 4 hundred thousands + 1 ten thousands + 9 thousands + 2 hundreds + 4 tens + 7 ones

Writing a numeral as the sum of the place values of all its digits is called the expanded form of that numeral.

5. Write (i) 72,908; (ii) 5,01,492 in the expanded form.

Write the given numbers in the place-value chart.

Thus, 72, 90870,000 + 2,000 + 900 + 0 + 8

Thus, 5,01,492 = 5,00,000 + 0 + 1,000 + 400 + 90 + 2

= 5,00,000 + 1,000 + 400 + 90 + 2

## Numbers Beyond One Lakh

Note: There are 7 digits in ten lakhs.

Therefore the seventh place is called ten lakhs place.

## How to Write Feet and Inches

There are two popular ways of writing feet: the abbreviation “ft.” or the single apostrophe (′). Inches can be represented using “in.” or with a double apostrophe (″). As an example, five feet, ten inches could be written as 5 ft. 10 in or 5′10″ .

Let's take a more in-depth look at the different ways of writing feet and inches and the common style guidance. Note that if you're writing an article for an employer, it's worth checking if they prefer you stick to a particular style guide.

## What is the symbol for feet?

Firstly, we can write the abbreviation for feet as “ft.” - for example, we would write 4 ft. Alternatively, you may also see a single apostrophe indicating feet - so 4′ = 4 ft. = four feet. “Ft” is the same abbreviation for both singular and plural forms, so one foot is written as 1 ft., and two feet is 2 ft.

Five feet could be expressed in the following ways:

## What is the symbol for inches?

We can write inches as an abbreviation as “in”. So for ten inches, we would write 10 in. Or we can use a double apostrophe - so we write ten inches as 10″.

Sixty inches could be expressed in the following ways:

## Different styles for writing feet and inches

If you're writing something for publication, there isn't really a right or a wrong way to write measurements. But you should look to be consistent and use the same style throughout.

## Writing feet and inches in the Chicago Manual style

The Chicago Manual of Style is most often used for academic writing. With this style, you spell out every word to avoid any ambiguity. For example, you would write, “The woman was five feet seven inches tall”. If you opt to use quotation marks, don't leave a space after the foot symbol - so you would write “She was 5′7″ in height”. If you're writing really short, you can include a hyphen. So, “five-seven." 1

## Writing feet and inches in AP style

The Associated Press Stylebook is used by journalists writing for US newspapers and other media outlets. There are four basic rules for writing measurements in AP style:

- Write the measurement in full as inches, feet, etc.
- Always use figures before the measurement: for example, 4 inches, 9 feet, etc.
- Don't use hyphens when writing a person's height, except if it's describing them. Then you can write “the six-foot-four man”. Apostrophes are used to indicate feet and inches only in technical contexts.
- Use commas when talking about length and width. For example, the trailer is 24 feet long, 9 feet wide and 9 feet high.
- She is 5 feet 4 inches tall.
- The 5-foot-4-inch woman drove to work.
- The swimming pool is 30 feet long, 15 feet wide and 6 feet deep.
- The table measures 7 feet by 5 feet.
- The 7-by-5 table fits nicely in the dining room.

Understanding the different ways of writing feet and inches will help you work more accurately with your next project. And when you're writing about measurements, clear, consistent communication is essential, so choose your style and stick with it!

## Percent, Per Cent and Percentages

- 2-minute read
- 26th March 2018

We’ve been told that putting 110% into anything is mathematically impossible . But we’re proofreaders, not mathematicians! As such, we’re not going to let math get in the way of putting everything we have into solving your writing problems . Today, for example, we’re looking at writing percentages.

## Words and Numbers

As with any numbers , percentages can be written as either words or numbers:

Words: Around nine percent of people dislike coffee.

Numbers: Approximately 91% of people like coffee.

The examples above reflect three important guidelines when writing percentages:

- Numbers up to ten are usually written as words, while larger numbers are written as numerals
- When a percentage is written as a word, it should be followed by “percent”
- When a percentage is written as a numeral, it should be followed by the “%” sign

However, this can vary depending on the context (e.g., measurements in scientific writing are almost always written as numerals, even for numbers under ten). It’s therefore a good idea to check your style guide for advice on how to write percentages.

## Percent vs. Per Cent

The question we’re asked most often about writing percentages is whether to use “percent” or “per cent.” Ultimately, though, this doesn’t really matter: both are accepted spellings of this term.

## Find this useful?

Subscribe to our newsletter and get writing tips from our editors straight to your inbox.

Again, we recommend checking your style guide if you have one, as some publishers and colleges have a preference. And “percent” is much more common these days than “per cent.” But other than that, the main thing is picking one spelling and using it consistently throughout your work.

## When to Use “Percentage”

Finally, we have the word “percentage.” Although similar to “percent,” this word has a slightly different usage: “Percent” is used with specific numbers, while “percentage” is used when referring to a general or non-specific amount of something. For example:

A small percentage of the forms were coffee stained.

Almost seven percent of the forms were coffee stained.

As shown above, you should use “percentage” when the exact amount is unspecified.

## A ratio compares values .

A ratio says how much of one thing there is compared to another thing.

Ratios can be shown in different ways:

A ratio can be scaled up:

## Try it Yourself

Using ratios.

The trick with ratios is to always multiply or divide the numbers by the same value .

## Example: A Recipe for pancakes uses 3 cups of flour and 2 cups of milk.

So the ratio of flour to milk is 3 : 2

To make pancakes for a LOT of people we might need 4 times the quantity, so we multiply the numbers by 4:

3 ×4 : 2 ×4 = 12 : 8

In other words, 12 cups of flour and 8 cups of milk .

The ratio is still the same, so the pancakes should be just as yummy.

## "Part-to-Part" and "Part-to-Whole" Ratios

The examples so far have been "part-to-part" (comparing one part to another part).

But a ratio can also show a part compared to the whole lot .

## Example: There are 5 pups, 2 are boys, and 3 are girls

Part-to-Part:

The ratio of boys to girls is 2:3 or 2 / 3

The ratio of girls to boys is 3:2 or 3 / 2

Part-to-Whole:

The ratio of boys to all pups is 2:5 or 2 / 5

The ratio of girls to all pups is 3:5 or 3 / 5

## Try It Yourself

We can use ratios to scale drawings up or down (by multiplying or dividing).

## Example: To draw a horse at 1/10th normal size, multiply all sizes by 1/10th

This horse in real life is 1500 mm high and 2000 mm long, so the ratio of its height to length is

1500 : 2000

What is that ratio when we draw it at 1/10th normal size?

We can make any reduction/enlargement we want that way.

"I must have big feet, my foot is nearly as long as my Mom's!"

But then she thought to measure heights, and found she is 133cm tall, and her Mom is 152cm tall.

In a table this is:

The "foot-to-height" ratio in fraction style is:

We can simplify those fractions like this:

And we get this (please check that the calcs are correct):

"Oh!" she said, "the Ratios are the same".

"So my foot is only as big as it should be for my height, and is not really too big."

## 60th Birthday Messages and Thoughts on Turning 60.

60th Birthday Messages and 60th Birthday Quotations

March 14, 2018 // by Jo Castro 26 Comments

I’ve been absolutely bowled over and humbled by the 60th birthday messages I’ve received on my very special Big 0 day! So I thought I’d share some with you, and compile a useful resource of 60th birthday messages and also some present ideas too.

In a following post, I’m going to create 10 Pinnable quotations for you to use on Pinterest.

Table of Contents

## Thoughts on Turning 60

Thank you everyone who sent me messages, flowers and presents – I’m truly grateful, and feel very celebrated.

Although I have to admit I’ve been dreading turning 60! Don’t ask me why, but being in my sixties sounds so much older than being in my fifties. Perhaps it’s because it’s the pensionable era. I don’t know.

Thank you Facebook too – it’s at times like this that I’m so appreciative to be reunited with people around the world who I can’t see in real life . Thank you for your kind, thoughtful and funny 60th Birthday Messages .

Aside Note: If you’d like to see pictures of what we got up to on the actual day and more of the beautiful Cape Lodge – check out the pics I’ll soon be putting up on the Lifestyle Fifty on Facebook page . (Please “Like” or “Follow” my page on Facebook).

Anyway, thinking about being another year older I’ve decided that I’ll hang on to Dolly Parton’s words on turning 60:

“I’m not sixty, I’m ‘sexty’!” she said.

And if you’re 60 or over I hope you’ll put on a bit of lippy and a pretty dress – and remember that quote every time you feel a little invisible.

By the way. You are so Not Invisible!

## 60th Birthday Messages

If you’re stuck for ideas about what to write in a greeting card for someone turning 60 (or older for that matter) I thought it might be a good time to share some funny 60th birthday wishes, and some heartwarming messages too.

## 60th Birthday wishes

“The best birthdays of all are those that haven’t arrived yet.” Robert Orben

“Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.” Jean Paul Richter

“Whatever with the past has gone, the best is always yet to come.” Lucy Larcom

The quotes above are shared from a handy little book entitled: Keep Calm You’re Only 60 by Summerdale Publishers 2011. If you’d like to have a few more smiles buy the book.

I’m very fortunate to have just had a wonderful birthday in South West Australia with He Himself.

Dave treated me to champagne, a night away and dinner, and the lovely hotel management at Cape Lodge made sure there were birthday balloons in the bedroom.

Just the thing for a late night game of hand-balloon-tennis in the bedroom (seriously, yes, we did, with our shoes as the net). #sonotsixty!

When we lay on the bed exhausted by balloon tennis, after a lovely meal and a couple of glasses of champas, I started thinking about what turning 60 means.

Although my thoughts are not deep or philosophical, here’s what immediately came to mind.

- It’s a great privilege to have another birthday, no matter what number it is.
- I really do subscribe to the idea that you are as old as you feel.
- Some mornings when I get out of bed and feel my joints creak and ache as they get into their working positions, I do feel my age, but at heart I am still 25. How about you?
- How lovely it is to be past the age where I cared what everyone thought of me. These days I might pay heed to helpful advice or constructive criticism, but deep down I don’t give a fig what people think about me. I believe their business is not my concern 😉
- It’s great to know that I’m actually over the empty nest syndrome and that my children have grown into kind, independent adults who need me sometimes, but only on their terms and when they say so. This lets me off the hook from any overbearing feelings of responsibility which of course I felt when they were smaller (and in their teens!).
- I’m happy to be 60 because it’s leading to the years where I’ll have a little more time to pursue different interests, and perhaps stretch my capacity a little more. I’m looking forward to using this extra time to become more helpful to the Lifestyle Fifty community and our ‘near’ society as a whole.
- When can I get my free bus pass?
- Now I’m sixty I can wear purple and swear! LOL! There is a funny side to getting older .
- Now I’m sixty I’m more than ever aware that time is not a given.
- I’m going to focus everyday on making the most of the everyday minutes, paying attention to nature, being in the moment with my loved ones, and not wishing my life away in any respect.

Are you sixty? Even if you’re not … what thoughts about getting older and not wasting mid-life could you share with us in the comments?

Pin and save this post for later … and don’t forget to check out the next post which has 10 Pinnable images each with a separate inspiring or funny quotation.

The happiest of 60th Birthdays Jo! Sounds like as you get older you come into your own more and more. What a wonderful feeling! It is well deserved, for you and for all of we women in this age group. It’s my turn in December – here’s to we 1958 girls!

April 10, 2018 at 7:47 am

Thank you so much Jo 🙂 Here’s looking forward to your big 0 in December and hoping it’s wonderful. Yep, 1958 was a very good year 😉

March 18, 2018 at 6:08 am

Happy 60th Jo! I love your attitude and I love your style. You certainly are a “young 60”! I can echo you thoughts on being 60. It is only a number and yes you are only as old as you feel. Although I’m constantly aware that I’m 61 I still feel rather young and my age will never stop me from doing what I want to do – and that is live life to the fullest.

March 18, 2018 at 2:29 pm

Thanks Kathy 🙂 You still look rather young and act it – go you! I’m right on your tail!

March 17, 2018 at 5:45 pm

Happy 60th Jo and welcome to the 60s club. I hated turning 60 and was annoyed later that I didn’t organise a big birthday bash. It really did make me feel invisible. But now, I think just get on with it, there is so much out there still to explore and do – it is scary sometimes to think that time is running down – so just get out and do it! We must never stop learning or stop challenging ourselves. Happy 60s Jo xx

March 18, 2018 at 2:30 pm

Thanks Jill – I know, it is scary thinking about time running down.

March 15, 2018 at 6:05 pm

Just fabulous Jo! Happiest of birthdays to you. Love the quotes and messages, I must remember them for a few years time

March 16, 2018 at 4:37 pm

Thanks Debbie 🙂 Glad you liked the quotes and little messages too 🙂

March 15, 2018 at 2:21 pm

Happy Birthday! What a gorgeous sixty you are. Where’s the purple and the swearing?

March 16, 2018 at 4:38 pm

Thank you Kalpanaa! Haha – I think actually the purple is not going to be worn all that much and ahem, the swearing might be happening already!!

March 15, 2018 at 7:00 am

Happiest of birthdays!! I absolutely love all of these quotes, because inside we still feel so young!! XOXO Jodie

March 15, 2018 at 10:31 am

Happy 60th Borthday Jo. Sounds like you had a lovely time celebrating. I celebrated my 60th by doing a 1000k pilgrimage in Spain. Mainly to celebrate arriving at 60 with my health and a good level of fitness. I’ve just discovered your blog through Sizzling Towards 60 and I look forward to becoming a regular reader

What a great way to celebrate your 60th Jennifer. That’s a longgg walk. Fantastic! Thanks for becoming a regular reader 🙂

March 15, 2018 at 5:18 am

Happy birthday Jo and I can remember my 60th celebrations from last year. It was the best time and I have fully embraced my new decade. Life is so wonderful these days that the age of a woman really has little bearing on who she is. Of course, having a party to celebrate life is a must! I love all of your ideas and being Sexty as you are already Sizzling! Thanks for sharing at #MLSTL and continue to enjoy your special day.

March 15, 2018 at 10:32 am

You are the poster girl for celebrating the sizzling sixties Sue! Thanks for your good wishes.

March 15, 2018 at 12:37 am

I plan to take a big trip for my 60th birthday. For my husbands 60th we went to Ireland and had a fabulous time. Age is just a number. Sixty is the new 40.

March 15, 2018 at 2:13 am

Totally agree Michele. Ohh hope you are planning a great trip.

March 14, 2018 at 10:44 pm

I loved the funnies about being 60. As I always say every day on this side of the ground is a good day. Great post.

March 15, 2018 at 2:14 am

Thanks Victoria. Yes, every day is precious.

March 14, 2018 at 8:39 pm

You are one of the youngest looking 60 year olds I know Jo – and the thought of you playing balloon tennis in your lovely hotel room made me smile. BTW I love the blouse you’re wearing in the pics – it’s a really pretty print. Happy Birthday and as far as I’m concerned you don’t look a day over 30 🙂

Between Sue turning 60 last year, and you this year, I’m thinking it looks like a pretty good age and stage! Thanks for linking up with us at #MLSTL and I’ve shared this on my SM xx

March 15, 2018 at 2:16 am

Hi Leanne, thanks so much for your lovely words 🙂 x So kind x The blouse is a previous season from W. Lane – yes, it was the colours which attracted me too.

March 14, 2018 at 8:36 pm

Happy Belated! Looks like you had a wonderful timing celebrating it! I’m pushing 50 now and am embracing the aging process. Too many people get upset and depressed. To me, age is but a number. I’m only as old as I feel. However, I am looking forward to some of those over 50 discounts! 🙂

Great post!

March 15, 2018 at 2:17 am

Thank you Bren! Hope the run in to fabulous fifty is indeed fabulous for you. I agree, age is just a number and not worth getting depressed about.

March 14, 2018 at 7:29 pm

How appropriate that I saw this post on my 60th birthday! I love those quotes and will definitely try to always be ‘sexty’ and not ‘sixty’ !

Wow, that’s so cool that this post arrived on your 60th birthday Deb! Glad you will try to be ‘sexty’ too!

## Why the U.S. Has the Most to Gain From Supporting Ukraine

D onald Trump’s invitation for Russia to invade NATO countries catalyzed anxiety that Europe may have to fight Russian aggression alone, as Trump and his followers are becoming increasingly assertive that supporting Ukraine is a bad deal for the U.S.

Earlier this week, Trump, who has long viewed foreign policy from the prism of money, highlighted the defense money he says is supplied by the U.S., comparing it to that paid by other countries. "You don't pay your bills, you get no protection. It's very simple," he said. “Hundreds of billions of dollars came into NATO, and that's why they have money.” Trump went on to call Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky “ the greatest salesman in history ” and promised that he himself will “get the Ukraine war settled.”

On the heels of Tucker Carlson's fawning interview with President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, Elon Musk’s assertion that “we have to kill” Ukraine aid because “ there’s no way in hell Putin is going to lose,” and flagging public support for Ukraine more broadly, Trump is pressuring his House GOP acolytes, led by Speaker Mike Johnson, to kill the $60 billion funding bill for Ukraine, despite its passage by the Senate, with Marjorie Taylor Greene arguing “Ukraine is not the 51 st state.”

Having catalyzed 1,200 major global corporations to exit Russia two years ago in protest over the bloody invasion of a peaceful, sovereign nation, we are not surprised to have received scores of alarmed messages. We have been reviewing the economics behind continuing U.S. support to Ukraine, and even setting aside the terrible human suffering amidst thousands of civilian deaths; the fact that helping Ukraine defend itself is saving millions of lives and forestalling World War III given Putin's imperial ambitions; as well as the diplomatic and national security value of such aid, in actuality, the U.S. is the single biggest winner from supporting Ukraine. Here are three tangible reasons why.

## 90% of Ukraine aid spending stays in the U.S., creating thousands of jobs

Although some may claim U.S. aid vanishes into a cesspool of unchecked Ukrainian corruption , one study has shown that 90% of Ukraine aid dollars are not actually sent to Ukraine after all. Rather, these funds stay in the U.S., where leading defense contractors have invested tens of billions in over 100 new industrial manufacturing facilities, creating thousands of jobs across at least 38 states directly, with vital subcomponents sourced from all 50 states.

Virtually all the munitions Ukraine is most reliant upon are fully built in the U.S ., ranging from javelins made in Alabama, to Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (GMLRS) made in West Virginia, Arkansas, and Texas. Not forgetting the smaller-ticket items such as night-vision gear, medical supplies, and small-arms ammunition, all made in the U.S. Any additional Ukraine aid would likely only help the U.S. economy even more, since previous weapons shipments were largely drawdowns of musty old stockpiles and existing inventories rather than new supplies.

## The Ukraine conflict has revitalized NATO, lessening the relative economic burden on the U.S.

Though Trump has complained for years that the European countries are not contributing their fair share to NATO—a common gripe of President Obama’s as well—and despite Trump’s threats to let “Russia do whatever the hell they want” to NATO free-riders, Trump largely failed in his quest to get the E.U. countries to contribute meaningfully more to their own defense, and ironically, only Putin has been able to succeed where Trump failed.

The degree to which Europe is now stepping up to the plate after Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and sharing the burden with the U.S. is striking. Prior to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, only two European countries spent more than 2% of their GDP on defense spending. Now, 11 NATO members spend more than 2% of their GDP on defense, with some members such as Poland spending even more than the U.S . as a percentage of GDP. At least six European countries increased their defense spending by over 10% last year alone , including some by up to 30%.

Furthermore, although, under Trump, the U.S. spent over twice of what the rest of NATO spent on their own defense, combined; now, Europe’s financial commitments toward Ukraine exceed that of the U.S ., with European aid especially invaluable over the last month as the U.S. funding spigot dried up, with some countries such as Estonia setting aside half their defense budget for Ukraine. This is not to mention the addition of new members paying their own way such as Finland, with Sweden soon to follow.

## Russian military might has been severely degraded without a single active duty American military casualty

Although critics point out that both Ukraine and Russia are largely stalemated militarily, with neither side making any substantive territorial gains since fall 2022, the U.S. is the single biggest winner regardless, with one of the world’s three most potent militaries severely degraded and humiliated without a single active duty American military casualty, using only 5% of our U.S. defense budget and less than 1% of our total government spending—with a sum equivalent to the amount the U.S. is spending on such mundane items such as software for government agencies; COVID rental relief; and interstate highway traffic signs.

By contrast, Russia is now spending 40% of its government budget on defense, cannibalizing the rest of the productive economy to fund war after losing 50% of its military might over the last two years, not dissimilar to how Ronald Reagan’s famed “Star Wars” program disproportionately drove Soviet military spending to unsustainable levels. This trend will likely only continue as Russia continues to embarrass itself over its incompetent prosecution of the war. After all, over the last five months alone, Russia has lost at least a fifth of its prized naval fleet—the most powerful navy in the world by some measures prior to the war—even though its adversary, Ukraine, does not even have a navy, amidst continued heavy casualties numbering over 500,000 by some estimates.

Elsewhere we have shown that the Russian productive economy is imploding under the weight of economic sanctions and historic corporate withdrawals of 1,000+ companies as well as Putin’s cannibalization for the war effort. While Putin has concealed most of its required national income statistics to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), through triangulated research we previously found several Russian economic sectors have collapsed up to 90 percent, foreign direct investing into Russian has gone from $100 billion a year to zero, there has been a massive capital outflow matched by millions of top tech professional fleeing, over 2/3 of Russia’s exports are energy and energy profits have been sliced in half with a virtual inability to sell its gas to any country and oil sold at breakeven prices. Beyond cannibalizing the 70 percent of the Russian economy he now controls, Putin’s only hope for winning is that Trump will shatter the unity of allies which is strangling Russia’s aggression.

As the House considers the $60 billion in Ukraine aid approved by the Senate, Speaker Mike Johnson need not be imprisoned by his past, similar to how Richard Nixon used his anticommunist credibility to forge a working relationship with communist China. In facing a similar dilemma eighty years ago, former GOP Senator Arthur Vandenberg, a leading isolationist, pivoted 180 degrees and helped fortify wavering GOP support for the Marshall Plan among his colleagues after World War II. Vandenberg warned in a pivotal speech on the floor of the Senate in 1945,

”We must have maximum Allied cooperation and minimum Allied frictions. We have fabulously earned the right to be heard in respect to the basis of this unity. We need the earliest possible clarification of our relations with our brave allies.”

One does not even need to consider what the ripple effect of an appeasement-pleading surrender to Putin’s brutal imperial ambitions would mean for Central Europe, not to mention Taiwan, and the global economic crisis that would cause, to see why the U.S is the single biggest winner from supporting Ukraine, with substantial, immediate, and tangible benefits for not just American security but also even the U.S. economy.

We need to not succumb to Trump’s pathological career-long fear of partnership and collective action. As isolationist Vanderberg said, we must unify around “the most courageous thinking of which we are capable.” We confront such a moment now, but supporting Ukraine is not just an act of courage, or even charity. Supporting Ukraine is in our self-interest, and America is the single biggest winner from supporting Ukraine.
