    numbers

    My question is-if you have numbers in a letter at what numbers do you write out the number and when do you use the numerals?

    Re: numbers

    It is traditional to write out any number lower than 10. Ten and above are represented as numerals, unless they are the first word in a sentence (such as this one).
