Rules to Write Numbers from 1 to 40 Spelling
Certain rules can be followed while writing the spelling of numbers from 1 to 40. These rules are explained here in detail.
Rule 1: Understand place values: We can express the positional value of digits in a number depending upon where they are placed. Here's how to distinguish between the first 4 place values based on the position of 1:
 1 = the ones place
 10 = the tens place
 100 = the hundreds place
 1000 = the thousands place
Rule 2: For numbers 120, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100, and 1000, we can directly refer to the number names 1 to 40 chart to write their spellings. For example, the number name of 5 is Five, the number name of 14 is Fourteen, the number name of 30 is Thirty, and so on.
Rule 3: To write number names of multiples of 100 between 100 and 1000, we simply write the number name of the digit in the hundreds place and add the word “hundred”. For example, the number name of 500 is Five hundred.
Rule 4: To write number names of other 2 or 3digit numbers, we write their expanded form. For numbers having (1119) as their two last digits, we take the ones and tens place as a single unit. We then spell all addends and combine their respective names. For example, 37 = 30 + 7, and 37 in words is written as Thirtyseven.
