To represent a number expressed in words in digits or numerals we follow a standard convention in which the value of every numeral in a string of numerals is represented by its position in the complete numeral string starting from right most place (or digit) and moving to left:

First Digit:     Units

Second Digit: Tens

Third Digit:    Hundreds

Fourth Digit:  Thousands

Fifth Digit:     Ten Thousands

Sixth Digit:     Hundred Thousands

Seventh Digit: Millions

To represent values of number less than unit these are represented by placing a decimal (point) to the right of unis position and then the digits following the decimal point to the right have following place value depending on their position to right from the decimal point. Thus:

First Digit to right from decimal :    Tenth

Second Digit to right from decimal: Hundredths

Third Digit to right from decimal:    Thousandths

Fourth Digit to right from decimal:  Ten Thousandths

Fifth Digit to right from decimal:     Hundred Thousandths

When the number expressed in words does not specify any number for a particular digit position, it means value 0 for that position.

Using these numbers the given number can be represented as follows:

6 0 0 3 0 0 0 . 0 4 4

Please not that ten thousandths make one hundredths. In the number given above the digit representing hundredths is shown in bold. The facilities available in E notes do not permit circling a number.

First make a table for each place value.

| million |      100     |       10      |       1       | hundred | ten | ones | • | tenths | hundredths |

| Million | thousand | thousand | thousand |hundred | ten | ones | • | tenths | hundredths | thousandths

| million |      100     |       10      |       1       | hundred | ten | ones | • | tenths | hundredths |

The word “and” means a decimal point or fraction

|            |      100     |       10      |       1       |               |       |          |       |            |                     |

| Million | thousand | thousand | thousand |hundred | ten | ones |    •   | tenths | hundredths | thousandths

|            |                 |                 |                 |              |       |          | and |            |                    |

Start inserting the correct digits in the correct column.

|            |      100     |       10      |       1       |               |       |          |       |            |                     |

| Million | thousand | thousand | thousand |hundred | ten | ones |    •   | tenths | hundredths | thousandths

|      6    |                 |                 |         3      |              |       |          | and |            |                    |

Remember that when you enter a decimal start from the right most column and move left in this case the thousandths column.

|            |      100     |       10      |       1       |               |       |          |       |            |                     |

| Million | thousand | thousand | thousand |hundred | ten | ones |    •   | tenths | hundredths | thousandths

|      6    |                 |                 |         3      |              |       |          | and |            |        4          |         4

Any blank columns insert 0’s

|            |      100     |       10      |       1       |               |       |          |       |             |                     |

| Million | thousand | thousand | thousand |hundred | ten | ones |    •   | tenths | hundredths | thousandths

|      6    |         0      |        0       |         3      |       0     |   0  |    0    | and |      0    |        4          |         4

Now look in the hundredths column and circle that number. 6003000.044

Remember that the “th” at the end of a place value means that the number is to the right of the decimal.
