Hi, my name is Marija, I'm a mathematician, and today I'm gonna show you how to write out numerals in math. So if you have the number 5,482. What you're gonna do is obviously start from left to right and just identify the place value of the numbers that we're dealing with. So five is thousandth, so we're gonna go ahead and write five thousand, and just move on to the next number right after it, which is four, and four is in the hundreds place. So, we're writing four hundred, and you would be writing it on one line, I just don't have space. And then, once you get here, you can go ahead and write that out as one all together, eighty two. So this is when we say and, eighty two. So five, four, eight, two, we're gonna write out in words as five thousand four hundred and eighty two. So all you do is start at the left, look at the numerals place value, see the fives in the thousandths, so you write the digit out, write the place value out, go to the next number, four, write the digit out, write the place value out, and then once you get to the tens, you can go ahead and write it out as eighty two, okay? So five thousand four hundred and eighty two is written out in words like that. We'll do one more example. Let's say we had the number 312. Again we start at the left, you look at the digit. What is the place value that it's in? It's in the hundreds. So we write out the digit three, and we write out its place value, hundred. Now once we get down to the two digits, we can go ahead and write and, and that's the number twelve. And we're done. My name is Marija, and I just showed you how to write out numerals in math.
