In English, the hundreds are perfectly regular, except that the word hundred remains in its singular form regardless of the number preceding it.
So too are the thousands, with the number of thousands followed by the word "thousand"

|999,000||nine hundred and ninety-nine thousand (British English)|
nine hundred ninety-nine thousand (American English)
|10,000,000||ten million or one crore (Indian English)|

Ordinal numbers such as 21st, 33rd, etc., are formed by combining a cardinal ten with an ordinal unit.
Higher ordinals are not often written in words, unless they are round numbers (thousandth, millionth, billionth). They are written using digits and letters as described below.
