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
The below diagram will help us to get the better concept on facts about reading and writing large numbers.
So, while reading or writing a large number we need to start from the left side with the largest group and move to the right side.

(vii) 981,482,637,874 - Nine hundred eighty-one billion four hundred eighty-two million six hundred thirty-seven thousand eight hundred seventy-four
(vii) 956,491,638,852 - Nine hundred fifty-six billion four hundred ninety-one million six hundred thirty-eight thousand eight hundred fifty-two.
We have studied the following pattern regarding the smaller numbers:
Let us extend the same pattern to get the larger numbers:
We observe that the value of each place increases 10 times as we move one place from right to left, i.e., ones to tens, tens to hundreds, hundreds to thousands, etc.
However, to read numerals of larger numbers without difficulty, we group the places into periods in the place value chart.
These periods are usually separated by commas (,).
Frequently asked questions on Reading and Writing Large Numbers:
1. The total number of 6-digit number is
(a) 9,000
(b) 90,000
(c) 9,00,000
(d) 900
Solution:
Greatest six-digit number = 9,99,999
Greatest five-digit number = 99,999
Total number of six-digit numbers 9,99,999 - 99,999 = 9,00,000
So, the option (c) is correct, which is the required answer, i.e., answer (c).
2. How many 5-digit numbers are there in all?
Solution:
Greatest five-digit number = 99,999
Greatest four-digit number = 9,999
Total number of five-digit numbers 99,999 - 9,999
= 90,000
3. The total no. of 8-digit numbers is
(i) 9999999
(ii) 90000000
(iii) 10000000
(iv) 99999999
Solution:
Greatest eight-digit number = 9,99,99,999
Greatest seven-digit number = 99,99,999
Total number of five-digit numbers 9,99,99,999 - 99,99,999
= 9,00,00,000
