Thousands in English
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:
|4,500||four thousand, five hundred|
|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!
