Numbers

SYMBOL
VALUE
1
10
100

In order to write other numbers, you’ll have to multiply the necessary numerals.

The largest numerals are written first, the smallest last.


SYMBOL VALUE
1 000
10 000
100 000

For example, number 7 has seven unites of one (7 x 1) - we write 7 times the symbol for one.

Number 56 has 5 tens and 6 units of one (5 x 10 + 6 x 1) – we write 5 times symbol for ten and 6 times symbol for one.

Other examples:

15 (1 x 10 + 5 x 1)
149 (1 x 100 + 4 x 10 + 9 x 1)
32 721 (3 x 10 000 + 2 x 1000 + 7 x 100 + 2 x 10 + 1 x 1)
