Saying large numbers

Saying large numbers video screengrab

In English, how many zeros does a billion have?

When we write large numbers, do we use a comma (,) or a full-stop (.) to separate the thousands from the millions?

Is it the British or the Americans who say “and” after the hundreds?

Our video on saying large numbers answers all these questions and gives lots of examples of those large numbers in context.
