  3. For numbers larger than a myriad, the same grouping system used in English applies, except in groups of four places (myriads) rather than in groups of three (thousands).
    • Arabic Number Chinese Character Pronunciation
      100 一百
      1000 一千
      10 000 一万
      10 0000 十万
      100 0000 一百万
      1000 0000 一千万
      1 0000 0000 一亿
  4. Hence it is more convenient to think of numbers here as in groups of four, thus 1,234,567,890 is regrouped here as 12,3456,7890. Examples:
    • Number Characters in Mandarin
      255 255 两百五十五
      6,824 6824 六千八百二十四
      11,500 1,1500 一万一千五百
      556,824 55,6824 五十五万六千八百二十四
      3,005,000 300,5000 三百万五千
