    Could you tell me how to put "three million four hundred thousand six hundred thirty two" in numbers? I mean "three million = 3 000 000", "four hundred thousand = 400 000" and "six hundred thirty two = 632" but I can't put them together?

    Thank you!

    I have used the UK way of separating the digits. On the European continent, they would probably write the figure as 3.400.632

    ?? Of course you can put them together.

    3 400 632 / 3,400,632 / 3.400.632

    3,400,632 is how we do it in the US. Other languages may substitute periods for the commas. The period is used in American English to indicate the beginning of a decimal [tenths, hundredths, etc.] We don't ordinarily separate orders of magnitude by spaces.
