The standard form of a number is written with commas separating every three digits. Your number 474,136 is already in standard form. In short word form, the number is written using a combination of numerals and letters. Your number would be 474 thousand 136 In word form, the number is written in words: four hundred seventy-four thousand one hundred thirty-six In expanded form or expanded notation, your number is written as: 4 x 100,000 + 7 x 10,000 + 4 x 1,000 + 1 x 100 + 3 x 10 + 6 x 1 See: Expanded and Standard Forms http://mathforum.org/library/drmath/view/57137.html - Doctor Sarah, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
