SUM/MULTIPLICATIVE NUMBERS 1x once 2x twice 3x three times 4x four times 5x five times 10x ten times 20x twenty times .

2 x 2 ÷ 2.5=4 (One and six take away two times two divided by two point five is four • 10% 100=10 Ten percent of one hundred equals ten. point • % percent • 1 + 6 .minus(take away) • X times(multiplied by) • : divided by • = equals (is) • .• + plus(and) • . .

For example: • 1.5% = "one point five percent" 0.36 = one point three six . The numbers following the dot are pronounced separately. DECIMALS • When pronouncing decimals we use the word "point" to represent the dot.3% = "nought / zero point three percent" • 1.

SQUARED/CUBED/TO THE POWER OF • Square numbers are written 2² = we say "Two squared" = 2 x 2 = Two squared equals four."Two to the power of two equals four." and "Two to the power of three equals eight. • It's much easier to write 2¹² = 4096. • Two to the power of twelve = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 4096." • You can then have "to the power of" any number. • Cubed numbers are written 2³ = We say "Two cubed" = 2 x 2 x 2 = Two cubed equals eight • You can also say "to the power of" . .

" in years 1906 = "Nineteen oh six." 0 = love in tennis 20 ." US English for the 0 = "Zero“ number 0 = nil in football Chelsea 2 Manchester United 0 = "Chelsea two Manchester United nil.02 = "Nine point oh two.0 When we use it For example:- 0 = oh after a decimal point 9." 0 = zero in temperature 10°C = "10 degrees below zero." in bus or room numbers Room 101 = "Room one oh one." ." 0 = nought before a decimal point 0.0 = "Twenty love." Bus 602 = "Bus six oh two." in phone numbers 9130472 = "Nine one three oh four seven two.06 = "Nought point oh six.
