It says, 1 to X

No mention of zero :|. Whats zillion!?

Imaginary words ending in the sound "-illion", such as zillion[1] and bazillion[2], are often used as fictitious names for an unspecified, large number, by analogy to names of large numbers such as billion and trillion. Their size is dependent upon the context, but can typically be considered large enough to be unfathomable by the average human mind.

Hi Md Mashud;
I win this thread! I want a cookie
Sorry but you only get the cookie after you have spelled out all the numbers between 1 and a billion; and so confirm this is all true.:grumbling

I think we can be kind to you, if you do this task diligently you can have two cookies.:okay:

But you must not come to expect this kind of generousity as a reward for everything you do in life. :hmm: Sometimes we have to do things for no reward at all.:cry:

That can't be right.

For example,
101
One hundred and one.

Assalamu Alaikum

That can't be right.

For example,
101
One hundred and one.
101 would actually be properly said and written as one hundred one, "and" is used when there is a decimal value, e.g. $101.50 - one hundred one dollars and fifty cents.

That's what I learned in school, although I'm not sure if it's a universal rule.
