I had an argument with someone recently and figured I should find out, so I went on a research spree and could not find any authoritative answers on the subject.
I am sure there are many disputes about how one should write numbers, as digits (0-9) or as words (one, two, three....)
I just want to know about one particular subset of this.
If I want to write
'Three cookies' is it incorrect to write
I am aware that when wanting to write large numbers, it is acceptable to write with digits, like in the case of
'4356 people showed up to the event' since it would be sort of silly to write
'four thousand three hundred and fifty six people showed up to the event' but in the case of single digits, I was always told I should write the number out fully, and not just use the digit.
I hope my question is clear, I do not want to start a discussion or a debate about anything other than the particular case of writing a single digit versus writing out the word. Thanks.
