Part 4: 100+

Hello! In this lesson we will learn the English cardinal numbers above one hundred. By now, you have mastered the numbers from zero to one hundred. Now, you may bring that knowledge in to help you master all the numbers above one hundred.

We will begin by learning the numbers for multiples of one hundred.

100 one hundred

200 two hundred

300 three hundred

400 four hundred

500 five hundred

600 six hundred

700 seven hundred

800 eight hundred

900 nine hundred

The numbers 100 to 999 work just like 0 to 99. Simply tell how many hundreds there are, then add whichever two-digit number should follow. For example to say the number 101, simply say the number for 100, “one hundred”, followed by the number 1, which you know is “one”, to make “one hundred one”. This pattern works for any multiple of one hundred. For example, to say the number 263 in English, simply say the number for 200, “two hundred”, followed by the number for 63, which you now know is “sixty three” to make “two hundred sixty-three”. Notice that even though there are multiple hundreds, the word does not end with the letter -s when describing a number. The word “hundred” remains in its singular form regardless of the number preceding it.

Now let us look at the numbers above 999.

1,000 one thousand

2,000 two thousand

3,000 three thousand

4,000 four thousand

5,000 five thousand

6,000 six thousand

7,000 seven thousand

8,000 eight thousand

9,000 nine thousand

10,000 ten thousand

100,000 one hundred thousand

200,000 two hundred thousand

1,000,000 one million

2,000,000 two million

1,000,000,000 one billion

As we can see, the numbers one thousand and above are separated by a comma in groups of three digits.

The numbers “one thousand” and above work the same way that 100 to 999 work, as well as 0 to 99. We simply tell how many thousands and hundreds there are, then add whichever two-digit number should  follow. For example, to say the number 2,602, say the number “two thousand”, follow by the number “six hundred”, followed by the number “two”. Altogether, the number is said as “two thousand six hundred two”. Let us look at a few more examples of these large numbers.

7,263 is “seven thousand two hundred sixty-three”.

10,440 is “ten thousand four hundred forty”.

55,005 is “fifty-five thousand five”.

303,644 is “three hundred three thousand, six hundred forty-four”.

5,250,000 is “five million, two hundred fifty thousand”.

Amazing! Now that you have an understanding of the English cardinal numbers, you can now count in English to any number up to a billion. It is now your turn to practice counting in English.
