In compound ordinal numbers, note that only the last figure is written as an ordinal number - 522nd = five hundred and twenty-second.

Titles - With the names of kings and queens, ordinal numbers are written in Roman numbers. In spoken English, the definite article is used before the ordinal number (Charles II - Charles the Second, Edward VI - Edward the Sixth)

"And" is used for reading a numeric figure of three or more than three digits.

Teen yaa adhik ank kee sankhyaayn paDhate samay saamaanyata 'And" kaa prayog kiyaa jaataa hai.

Number English Hindi
125 One hundred and twenty five Ek sau pachchees
5,235 Five thousand, two hundred and thirty five Panch hazaar do sau paintees
12,550 Twelve thousand, five hundred and fifty Barah hazaar panch sau pachaas
321,457 Three hundred and twenty one thousand, four hundred and fifty seven Teen laakh ekkees hazaar chaar sau sattavan
170,452,426 One hundred and seventy million, four hundred and fifty two thousand, four hundred and twenty six Satrah crore chaar laakh bavan hazaar chaar sau chhabbees
140,221,400 One hundred and forty million, two hundred and twenty one thousand, four hundred Chaudah crore do laakh ekkeess hazaar chaar sau.
7,500 Seven thousand five hundred Saat hazaar paanch sau
106,200 One hundred and six thousand, two hundred Ek laakh chhah hazaar do sau
16,002 Sixteen thousand and two Solah hazaar do

Please note that 'And' comes after hundred. When in the last hundred, no numeric figure is there and there are two zeros (00), then 'And' does not come after 'hundred'.

Upar dekhe, 'And' kaa prayog 'hundred' ke baad aataa hai. Agar aakharee hundred ke baad koi sankhyaa naa ho, bulki do zero (00) ho to 'And' kaa prayog 'hundred' ke baad nahee aataa hai.
