In reading and writing large numbers we group place values into periods ‘ones or unit’, ‘tens’, ‘hundred’, ‘thousand’, ‘10 thousand’, ‘100 thousand’, ‘million’, ’10 million’, ‘100 million’, ‘billion’, ’10 billion’, ‘100 billion’, ‘trillion’ are periods.

For example:

Ones/Unit = 1

Tens = 10

Hundred = 100

Thousand = 1,000

10 Thousand = 10,000

100 Thousand = 100,000

Million = 1,000,000

10 Million = 10,000,000

100 Million = 100,000,000

Billion = 1,000,000,000

10 Billion = 10,000,000,000

100 Billion = 100,000,000,000
