How to Write Four Digit-numbers in Numerals and Words?

There are four digits in a four-digit number. According to their values, the digits are placed from right to left at one’s place, ten’s place, hundred’s place and thousand’s place.

For example, in the number 6572;

2 is at unit/one’s place having its value 2 × 1 = 2
7 is at ten’s place having its value 7 × 10 = 70
5 is at hundred’s place having its value 5 × 100 = 500
6 is at thousand’s place having its value 6 × 1000 = 6000
So, 6572 = 6000 + 500 + 70 + 2
6572 is the short form whereas 6000 + 500 + 70 + 2 is the expanded form.

It is read as ‘Six thousand five hundred seventy two’.

To write a four-digit number in numerals a comma is marked before writing the three digits from the right. The only digit left is the digit of thousands.

As in 8279, a comma is marked before 279, the only digit left is 8, whose value is 8000. The number will be written in numerals as 8,279 and written in words as Eight thousand two hundred seventy nine.
