To compose any number as words, we need to check the place value and understand it. Let us learn bit by bit.
The “ones” place value can hold only one digit. The digits are zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, and nine.
Next, the ten’s place. It can hold numbers from 10 - 19. In words, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, and nineteen. The Last number here would be twenty.
After twenty, the number develops from so that they are written in words as thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety.
The former numbers are connected with these words and referenced from one to nine. For instance, twenty-one, twenty-two, and so on.
Let us discover how to compose any given number in words with an example.
Example: Write 42 in words.
The number in one’s place is two. Hence, there are 2 ones.
The number in ten’s place is four. Hence, there are 4 tens.
Therefore, 4 tens and 2 ones = 42. This can be read as forty - two.

14 | Fourteen | 34 | Thirty Four | 54 | Fifty Four | 74 | Seventy Four |
15 | Fifteen | 35 | Thirty Five | 55 | Fifty Five | 75 | Seventy Five |
16 | Sixteen | 36 | Thirty Six | 56 | Fifty Six | 76 | Seventy Six |
17 | Seventeen | 37 | Thirty Seven | 57 | Fifty Seven | 77 | Seventy Seven |
18 | Eighteen | 38 | Thirty Eight | 58 | Fifty Eight | 78 | Seventy Eight |
19 | Nineteen | 39 | Thirty Nine | 59 | Fifty Nine | 79 | Seventy Nine |
20 | Twenty | 40 | Forty | 60 | Sixty | 80 | Eighty |
81 | Eighty One |
82 | Eighty Two |
83 | Eighty Three |
84 | Eighty Four |
85 | Eighty Five |
86 | Eighty Six |
87 | Eighty Seven |

91 | Ninety One |
92 | Ninety Two |
93 | Ninety Three |
94 | Ninety Four |
95 | Ninety Five |
96 | Ninety Six |
97 | Ninety Seven |
98 | Ninety Eight |
99 | Ninety Nine |
100 | One Hundred |
Previously, we learned how to spell from one to one hundred. Now, to write till one thousand, you need to repeat the terms of every hundredth number. Like 201 is read as two hundred and one and till 299 which is read as two hundred and ninety nine and this continues till nine hundred and ninety nine. Now, after nine hundred and ninety nine comes in 1000. 1000 in words is spelled as one thousand. The table that is given below is a reference table which helps you spell till one thousand.
Number | In Words |
100 | 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 |
1000 | One Thousand or Thousand |
Question 1: Write 66 in words.
Solution: The number in one’s place is six. Hence, there are 6 ones.
The number in ten’s place is six. Hence, there are 6 tens.
Therefore, 6 tens and 6 ones = 66. This can be read as sixty - six.
