How are Arabic numbers written? | Alif Arabic

Arabic numbers are written using a sequence of digits from 0 to 9. In the Arabic numbers system, the position of each digit determines its value. The digits are read from left to right, and each digit represents a multiple of ten depending on its position.

Since you’re learning Arabic then you must know that it is written from right to left, however, that is not the case when it comes to numbers.

Arabic numbers are written from left to right. It’s essential to learn Arabic numbers when learning the language to be able to express your age, and time, understand the price of a product/service, understand dates, and so on.

For example, the number 123 is written in Arabic numbers as “1 2 3.” The digit “1” represents one hundred (10 to the power of 2), the digit “2” represents twenty (10 to the power of 1), and the digit “3” represents three (10 to the power of 0). So the value of the number is calculated as 1 x 100 + 2 x 10 + 3 x 1, which equals 123.

Arabic numbers are also written from left to right, like in English, and they are separated by a comma or a dot depending on the country or region. For example, in the United States, the number 1,234.56 is written as “1,234.56” using a comma as a separator, while in some other countries, a dot is used instead.
