Thousands

In English, when we write numerals or digits, we separate thousands with a comma (,) as in this example: 5,300,000

We count 3 digits from the right and insert a comma, like this:

1,000 (one thousand)
4,500 (four thousand, five hundred)
96,000 (ninety-six thousand)
450,000 (four hundred and fifty thousand)
$6,300,000 (six million, three hundred thousand dollars)
  • We do NOT use a point (.) to separate thousands.
  • We do NOT use a space (  ) to separate thousands.
  • There is NO space before or after the comma.
Be careful with commas and points. Some languages use them in the opposite way!
