1 000 000
You already know the following:
10 x 10 = 100
100 x 10 = 1 000
1 000 x 10 = 10 000
10 000 x 10 = 100 000
Look carefully at the above pattern and fill in:
100 000 x 10 = ______________________________________________________
Correct! 100 000 x 10 = 1 000 000
We read: 1 000 000 is one million
Million | Hundred thousand | Ten thousand | Thousand | Hundred | Ten | One |
M | HTh | TTh | Th | H | T | U |
1 000 000 | 100 000 | 10 000 | 1 000 | 100 | 10 | 1 |
4 721 568 is read as 4 million 721 thousand 568
Thus: Four million seven hundred and twenty one thousand five hundred and sixty eight
We group figures (digits) in threes from the right.
In the example the first space from the left tells us how many millions we have. The second space from the left indicates how many thousands there are.
E.g. 3 (million) 268 (thousand) 413
