Statistics Saturday: The Whole Numbers One Hundred Through One Hundred Twenty Written In Alphabetical Orders


[ Please be warned, LFFL! More whole-number ordering is ahead, as I said would come in time! ]

Investigation into this problem revealed that while most people would call the number 100 “one hundred”, there are ambiguities about whether, say, “106” should be “one hundred six”, “a hundred and six”, or “one-oh-six”, and whether it should be “a hundred and thirteen” or “a hundred thirteen” or the like, and therefore different alphabetizations are sensible. Therefore selected alphabetizations are provided for your convenience.

  1. Unfortunately the warning didn’t help much. Which shows stupidity on my part. Why I still looked at this several times over 3 days time, I’ll never know. Maybe I like putting myself through agony of some sort. It tells me a lot about myself. Mainly that I never knew a blog could drive me to therapy. Thanks, JN.

  2. LOL! Perhaps……..but I’m pretty sure the therapist would need therapy after putting those out there. Thanks for the laugh tho.
