Lolz!!LOL The rest of world find US system confusing!
It goes like this: Start counting from the last digit of a particular number): For ex in this particular number 1,00,00,000 .
And count (from R to L), Units, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten Thousands, Lakhs, 10 lakhs, 1 crore. We were taught this in school..See its that easySmile

all of it.. its hard to explain..  i think india is the only country to count at the 100's level .. everyone else counts at the 1000's level.. it gets confusing when you are converting dollars to rupees.. Confused

But it's fun na. You only have ten, hundred, thousand, million, billion. We use all these plus lakh and crore too as intermediate stops. More names, more fun. Tongue
And just why should we bother about how the whole world counts when we're counting money or solving a maths problem inside our country. Tongue
