The number 8279 is written as eight thousand two hundred and seventy-nine (or just eight thousand two hundred seventy-nine).

Work Step by Step

We read numbers left to right. There are four digits, so the 8 is eight thousand. Then, the 2 is two hundred. The 79 is not spoken as seven nine but instead as seventy-nine because the 7 is in the tens place and the 9 in the ones place.
