Numbers greater than 100
Now that you learned how to represent the number 100 on the abacus, what about the numbers greater than 100? 100 is not a limit, we can go ahead in the count. How? Nothing new: we take the numbers we already know and we add them to 100.
Number 123 is made up of a hundred, 2 tens and 3 units. It's like the number 23 with a 1 on its left. We read one hundred and twenty-three.
You read all the numbers greater than 100 adding the word "one hundred" before the number. For example number 148 is "one hundred and fourty-eight" or 175 "one hundred and seventy-five".
What about if we add more hundreds? 2 hundreds = 200, 3 hundreds = 300, it isn't difficult, right?
