    Question Help Me

    How do you count syllables in numbers written down
    like this

    756
    4,802
    2004

    Which are written exactly as above, my question is how do I treat these numbers, do I for example just figure out the syllables like this

    Seven five six which would have three syllables or seven hundred and fifty six which I think would have six syllables, and so on for the other numbers detailed above.

    Or is there another way in which you figure out the syllables contained in these numbers?

    Regards

    Lloyd

    There is no standard rule. Just be clear. You are not talking about syllables; you are talking about words.

    756:

    seven five six
    seven hundred fifty-six
    seven hundred and fifty-six

    4802

    four eight oh/zero two
    four thousand eight hundred and two
    forty-eight oh two

    2004

    If this is a date:

    two thousand and four
