Indian Numbering System
Alex Steffen, 29 Dec 04

If, like me, you are a non-Indian, find reading Indian new sources valuable, but don't really know your lakh from your crore, and find the placement of commas in Indian numbers utterly baffling, this guide to the Indian numbering system will prove helpful:

Term/ Figure/ No. of zeros/ In words

lakh (lac)/ 1,00,000/ 5/ Hundred Thousand

crore/ 1,00,00,000/ 7/ Ten million

arab/ 1,00,00,00,000/ 9/ 1 billion

kharab/ 1,00,00,00,00,000/ 11/ 100 billion

I have a question with the numerical system did our languages start by one number representing one word. And if so where can i find something of this sort

Numeric design is possibly one of the most contested arguments in the entire hierarchical structure of literature. The Papal Latin Colleges just cannot resist sitting down on numeric change. But that, - as they say -, is an entirely new can of worms.

Should you have access to a library, you could do much worse than to peruse some mathematical titles, although do not expect these volumes to be readily accessible on the shelves.
