Lesson 5: Counting patterns within 1,000

# Skip-counting by 100s

Sal counts by 100s.

## Want to join the conversation?

• if i can count by 5s, 10s, 100s and 1000s will i be able to count by 2000
• Yes you can count by any number! For example, you can count by 369s (hard, but you still could)! I hope this helps!
• Skip counting by 100s must be very easy because just like skip counting by 1s or 10s you need to memorize the 100s. It goes like 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1,000?
• So, is there usually a comma between the first number (in the thousands place) and the second number in a number (in the hundreds place) like 1,832?
• The "thousands separator" depends on which country and/or language: some countries use commas, some use spaces, and some use periods. (And for the decimal point, some countries use a comma instead of a period.) For example, for the number "1,234,567.89":

England:
1,234,567.89

France:
1 234 567,89

Spain:
1.234.567,89
• so i can count by 1000 right
