How to write numbers, figures, dates and times

## How to write numbers, figures, dates and times

1. Write out numbers one to ten in words.

2. Use figures for 11 and above.

4. Always use figures in data if decimals or fractions are involved: 6.25 or 6 1/4.

5. Write ordinals (first, second, third etc) in full, not 1st, 2nd, 3rd.

6. Write fractions in full and hyphenate them in the body of text eg two-thirds of the class.

7. Write thousands as 60,000, not 60K.

8. Use a comma for tens of thousands or more: 9000; 12,000; 50,000.

9. Write millions as 60 million or 60m, not 60,000,000.

10. File sizes should always be written as abbreviations eg 45Kb, or 1.8Mb.

12. Use ‘per cent’ in running text (as opposed to tables etc.), not the % sign.

13. Use these forms rather that the 24-hour clock: 9.30am, 12 noon, 5pm, 12 midnight.

14. Write dates in this format: 7 September 2022.

15. Use ‘twenty-first century’, not ‘21st century’.

18. Do not use apostrophes for collective dates: 2020s, not 2020’s.

## Numbers, Numerals and Digits

A number is a count or measurement that is really an idea in our minds.

We write or talk about numbers using numerals such as "4" or "four".

But we could also hold up 4 fingers, or tap the ground 4 times.

These are all different ways of referring to the same number.

A numeral is a symbol or name that stands for a number.

Examples: 3 , 49 and twelve are all numerals.

So the number is an idea, the numeral is how we write it.

A digit is a single symbol used to make numerals.

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9 are the ten digits we use in everyday numerals.

Example: The numeral 153 is made up of 3 digits ("1", "5" and "3").

Example: The numeral 46 is made up of 2 digits ("4", and "6").

Example: The numeral 9 is made up of 1 digit ("9"). So a single digit can also be a numeral

We can use other symbols too, for example hexadecimal also uses some letters!

## Digits -> Numerals -> Numbers

But try to use "digit" only when talking about the single symbols that make up numerals, OK?
