Abstract Integer numbers can be expressed in English by a series of words such as “one hundred thirty three million two hundred four.” The process indicated by the accompanying flowchart evaluates numbers represented by such a string. To include words up to “billion” requires four terms “Sumi.” The multiplications can be done by shifting on a decimal machine.
