Numbers in English

There are two main types of numbers:

Cardinal Numbers - 1 (one), 2 (two) etc. (Used mainly for counting)

Ordinal Numbers - 1st (first), 2nd (second), 6th (sixth), etc. (Used mainly for putting things in a sequence)

* give years: She has completed her graduation in two thousand and ten (2010). We had gone to UK in two thousand and twelve (2012)

** Ordinal Numbers **

Oridinally numbers are created by adding 'TH' to the end of a Cardinal number - (seventh, sixteenth).

There are ** exceptions** where 'TH' is not added - (one - first, two - second, three - third, five - fifth, eight - eighth,
nine - ninth & twelve - twelfth)

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.
