Business Numbers


Numbers provide our communications with specific information such as quantities, dollar amounts, percentages, measurements, dates
Numbers from 1 through 10 the numbers from 1 through 10 should be written in words
Numbers that begin sentences write in words any number that begins a sentence
when spelling out large numbers (numbers over 1000) use the shortest form possible Ex: fifteen hundred orders NOT one thousand five hundred
Fraction standing alone write in words a fraction that stands alone without a whole number. Ex: About one-half of the patients came early.
Ages spelled out unless they are considered significant statistics or technical measurements. Ex: Only employees who will be 55 by January 1...(the age is a significant statistic)
periods of time general period of times are usually written in words Ex: Although these ads were created fifteen years ago, they are still effective.
Numbers written as figures numbers higher than 10, sums of money, time, house, street, ZIP code numbers, decimals, mixed numbers, numbers in series;related numbers, percentages, weights and measures, miscellaneous
Time use figures with a.m. and p.m. Use either words or figures with o'clock
House, Street, ZIP, Code Numbers spell out street names from 1 through 10. Use figures for numbered street over 10.
Decimals for clarity use a zero before the decimal point when there is no whole number
Mixed numbers write a mixed number (a whole number plus a fraction) in figures, except at the beginning of a sentence. When spelling out mixed number, use the word "and" to separate the whole number from the fraction. Ex: three and one-half
Number in series when one number in a series must be written in figures, write all the numbers in figures. Ex: Our department consist of 2 nanagers, 5 secretaries, 12 media buyers, and 13 ad writers. (numbers 12 and 13 are above 10, they must be express in figures)
Related numbers numbers that refer to the same kinds of things. Ex:Thuy mailed 32 brochures and has already received 8 orders in just two weeks (3 would be spelled out, but it is related to 32. "Two" is not related to the other numbers and is therefore correctly spell.
Percentages use figures with the word "percent" Ex: last week the interest rate was about 8 percent
The symbol % is used in technical writing and in tables and invoices, not in correspondence. Always use figure with the symbol % with no space between the figure and the symbol.
weights and measures use figures to express numbers in weights, measures, and distances.
Consecutive numbers like 100 twenty-cent stamps Written that way to avoid confusing statement like 100 20-cent. Write the smaller of two consecutive numbers in words, even if that number would usually be written in figures
Numbers written as words numbers from 1 through 10, numbers that begin sentences, fractions standing alone, ages, periods of time
