Worksheet Overview

Sometimes you may hear people using numbers in alternative formats, such as:


"There were about 35 hundred people in the theatre".


35 hundred is the same as 35 x 100 = 3500 or three thousand five hundred.

Change 32 tens into a proper number



32 x 10 = 320

Write 523 hundred in the normal way



523 x 100 = 52300
