    Re: numerical

    Billion:
    "A billion is a thousand million."

    One billion:

    1,000,000 (one million)

    1,000,000,000 (one billion)

    Trillion:
    "A trillion is a million million."

    1,000,000 (one million)

    1,000,000,000,000 (one million million)=trillion

    "
    In British English use "and" when saying numbers in the hundreds. Example: seven hundred AND twenty seven.In American English do NOT use "and" when saying numbers in the hundreds. Example: seven hundred twenty seven."

    Quoted from here.

    Here's another quote:

    "
    Numbers over 100 are generally written in figures. However if you want to say them aloud or want to write them in words rather than figures you put 'and' in front of the number expressed by the last two figures. For example:

    203 two hundred and three (AmE: two hundred three)
    622 six hundred and twenty-two (AmE: six hundred twenty-two)"

    Quoted from here.
