In our Indian System of Numeration, we use commas from the right. The first comma comes before Hundreds place (3 digits from the right). The second comma comes before Ten Thousands place (5 digits from the right).

**Use of commas and Comparison of Number
Systems**

In our Indian System of Numeration, we use commas
from the right. The first comma comes before Hundreds place (3 digits from the right).
The second comma comes before Ten Thousands place (5 digits from the right). The
third comma comes before Ten Lakh place (7 digits from the right) and represents
Crore.

In the International System of Numeration, we use
Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten Thousands, Hundred Thousands, Millions and
Billions. Commas are used to mark Thousands, Millions and Billions.

We can easily understand both the Indian and the
International Number Systems from the following table.

With the help of the above table, we can read the
number 57340000 as 5,73,40,000 (five crore seventy three lakh forty thousand) in
the Indian System and as 57,340,000 (fifty seven million, three hundred forty thousand)
in the International System.

Now let us discuss simple problems with examples.

**Example 1.3**

The distance between the Sun and the Earth is about
92900000 miles. Read and write the number in the Indian and the International System
by using commas.

**Solution**

**Indian System**

i.e., 9,29,00,000

This is read as Nine
Crore Twenty Nine Lakh.

**International System**

i.e., 92,900,000

This is read as Ninety
Two Million Nine Hundred Thousand.

**Try these**

**Identify
the incorrect places of comma and rewrite correctly.**

**Indian System:
56,12,34,0,1,5**

** 9,90,03,2245**

**56,12,34,0,1,5** = 56,12,34,015

**9,90,03,2245 **= 99,00.32,245

**International
System: 7,5613,4534**

** 30,30,304,040**

**7,5613,4534** = 756,134,534

**30,30,304,040** = 3,030,304,040

**Activity**

Take a white chart and cut into 9
equal pieces. Write different numbers on each piece. Arrange the pieces, as many
times, horizontally which form different numbers. Write any five different numbers
and express them in the Indian and the International System.
