# "It is 10000 yen."

Do we really need the "一"

Starting at 万, numbers always begin with 一 if there is no other preceding number. This does not count for 百 and 千. (though you can still write 一 in front of them to put emphasis)

Example:

100 - 百

1000 - 千

10.000 - 一万

100.000.00 一億

hope that helps!

Can you please mention how the kanji for 10000000 is spelt? Thanks in advance

Since Japanese using 4 digits denomination, so it is spelled as 1,0000,0000 that why its translate as いちおく. おく in this term means 10^8.

Then why was it accepted before without the "一”? Like when we need to write "１１,０００", I could write "万千” without the "一“ and it was accepted.

I typed 万円 for 10,000yen and its not accepted

It's 一万円. Unlike 百 and 千 the 1 is necessary.

Like he said, it is only needed "If there is no other preceding number".

That's what. He said proceeding, not succeeding. But seems it still counts?

Thank a lot. That was very helpful!

is there any real reason to do so

Thank you so much! I wrote this in my notebook

I was wondering about that! Some of them use the ichi, but some don't. Is there a rule for this?

Following that logic it will help you remember why it needs 一 at the start, you need something to multiplicate

"万円です" は違いますか?

Yes; I'm pretty sure the 一（いち） is needed before numerical denominations starting at 万（まん） and up if there is no other preceding number.

What's that kanji in between は & い? Thank you.

it means "different". He is asking whether "万円です" has different/wrong meaning with the answer

Just didnt count enough zeros. Guess i have to go back to that lesson on zeros

Hahahaha!

「一万円です」

【いち- まん・えんです】

Let us know what is the correct answer to this problem.

if 万 is 10.000, why 一万 also is 10.000?

I think of it as the difference between saying "a hundred" and "one hundred."

Yeah, why do we write the character for one in front of the character for 10,000, but the characters for ten, hundred and thousand dont need it?

Can you please write it as 10,000 it's much easier to read.

The way I figure out 万 is draw an invisible line four digits to the left. Now look at the left side and ignore the rest for now. If it is 10000 then you would draw the line between 1 and 0. On the left there is only 1 so you have 一 and because it is a million you add 万. If you have something like 12340 then we would have 一(because the line still draws between one and two) 二千(for the number of thousands there are) 三百(for the number of hundreds) and 四十円（for forty yen) all together it would be 一万二千三百四十円. I hope that helps some

It is 11000 yen.

Please translate this in Japanese for me. TIA.

I keep hearing "yen" in most senteces instead of "en". Should I say "yen" or "en" in sentences?

Is the ー for long syllables in katakana different from the character for 一 (いち)?

I assume so because my answer wasn't accepted, and posting here in case others have the same question.

Yes, "一" (いち) is "One". Just think of one through three as sideways Roman Numerals. 一　二　三

The Katakana character ー (extended vowel) coincidentally looks like the kanji for "one" but is not related.

I had the same problem :/

This lesson explains 万 poorly, kinda appalling

I've been struggling to type 円 (the yen symbol) on the hiragana keyboard on mac. Luckily I found out how, I hope this saves some frustration to others.

For 円 Just type "enn" (with double n) and it will show up.

Also if you need to type an ん you can make it double (nn) and it will show the ん right away and you will prevent the keyboard to confusingly expect a vowel to make the な, に, の, ね, ぬ that you don't want.

Friggin hard

One of the previous questions accepts 万千百円です as the correct answer. Why does 一万円です have to have the 一, but 万千百円です didn't? Is there some rule for it, or was the previous one accepted even though it's a mistake? Thanks in advance for your answer.

Please get rid of this really annoying voice

All of a sudden I'm getting penalized for not having a nihon keyboard in the middle of a hyaku gem challenge. Without any heads up.
