Rules to Write Numbers from One to Fifty (1 to 50) Spelling
While writing the spelling of the digits from one to fifty (1 to 50), some rules have to be followed.
Rule 1: Grasping on place values: The positional value of the digits in a number can be expressed depending on where they are put. The first four place values depending on the position of the number 1 can be written as
 1 – one’s place
 10 – tens place
 100 – hundreds
 1000 – thousands place
Rule 2: The numbers from one to 20, 30…. 100 and 1000 can be referred to through the number names from one to fifty chart along with the spellings. For instance, the number name of 5 is five, the number name of 30 is thirty, and so on.
Rule 3: To write the number names of multiples of the number 100 and thousand, the number name of the digit in the 100’s place and the term “hundred” is written. For example, the number name of 400 is four hundred.
Rule 4: To author the number names of the rest of the other two or threedigit numbers, the expanded form is written. For the numbers (eleven – nineteen) as the final 2 digits, the ones and tens place is taken as one unit. The addends are spelt out and merged with their respective names. For instance, 54 = 50 + 4 and 54 in words is termed as fiftyfour.

Solved Problems on Number Name 1 to 50
Problem 1:
Solve and put down the given expression in words. 320 + 97 – (120 + 260)
Answer:
Now, we have to simplify the expression: 320 + 97 – (120 + 260)
First, simplify the expression inside the bracket
320 + 97 – (120 + 260) = 320 + 97 – 380
320 + 97 – (120 + 260) = 37 = Thirtyseven.
Hence, the simplified expression of 320 + 97 – (120 + 260) is 37.
Thus, the number 37 in words is thirtyseven.
Problem 2:
Find the answer of (one hundred and twentyone) – (seventyeight).
Answer:
In the form of numbers, one hundred and twentyone is expressed as 121, and seventyeight is expressed as 78.
The given problem is (one hundred and twentyone) – (seventyeight).
= (121 – 78)
= 43
On utilising the number name chart from 1 to 50, 43 can be expressed as follows.
43 = 40 + 3 = Forty + Three = Forty Three
