Number forms are the different ways of writing whole numbers. See below the six different ways of writing the same whole number.
The following table shows the number forms for a number much bigger than 324. Notice that in the figure above, we do not have a short word form for 324. However, we do have a short word form for the number 645927.
The short word form is used for numbers greater than one thousand.
Number Forms | Example |
Standard form | 645,927 |
Word form or written form | six hundred fourty-five thousand, nine hundred twenty-seven |
Short word form | 645 thousand, 927 |
Expanded form | (6 × 100,000) + (4 × 10,000) + (5 × 1000) + (9 × 100) + (2 × 10) + (7 × 1) |
Exponential form | (6 × 10^{5}) + (4 × 10^{4}) + (5 × 10^{3}) + (9 × 10^{2}) + (2 × 10^{1}) + (7 ×10^{0}) |
Scientific form | 6.45927 × 10^{5} |
Example #1
Show the six different ways of writing 572,048
Solution
Standard form: 572048
Word form: Five hundred seventy-two thousand, forty-eight
Short word form: 572 thousand, 48
