천 = 000 (thousand)

만 = 0.000 (-ty thousand)

천만 = 0.000.000 (-ty million)

Will need to brush up on my arithmetic.

The clearest ever explanation. Thank you!

This is very useful!

That's some damn expensive Chaebol bread

how to distinguish when 만 means "only" and when "10000"?

삼천만 원 = "thirty million won"

삼천 원 만 = "only three thousand won"

bread better taste like gold lol

I'd rather it taste like bread.

does it cure cancer?

3+0.00+0.000 = 30 000 000. Its literally so simple but hard at the same time

Basically, once you get up to four zeroes, the numbers go up exclusively in groups of four.

Hardest part for me is linking number of 0s to english number names

This is the most expensive bread I've encountered...

Jm:Hey,how much is this

Jk:No,no excuse me

Jm:Ahh Excusee me

Jh:Oh expensive Expensive very expensive

Lol just made my day .. Funny enough I thought of the same thing

What a rip-off ^_^

Isn't it also correct to say "This bread 'is' 30 million won" rather than 'costs'?

25K dollars, nothing to bad, of course

Forget my reply. I got it wrong and I can't erase the comment now

id like to try it lol

If bread costs this much, then we would all be starving XD

Well, atleast it costs atleast 10.

are korean numbers simply a thing to memorise? or is there any way to know/calculate that 삼천만 means thirty million and not three million like I always falsely guess at first?

I memorised 1-20 then every "10" number (i.e. 십, 백, 천, 만 etc.) and then it's a matter of maths. So I worked this out as 삼천 (3,000) lots of 만 (10,000) so 30,000,000

when u use it more, hopefully it starts to come out of ur memory quicker! but chon (thousand) plus man (ten thousand) makes a thousand ten-thousands, which is ten million. Chon is easy because it moves you over exactly 3 decimal places, just like how numbers in english work! Baek is just one less 0 - a hundred then-thousands gets you a million.

Shouldn't it accept "This bread is 30 million won", if it's equally okay with "this cake costs/is two dollars"?

It is correct now.

is it still wrong if i wrote the number instead of the words "thirty million"?

30M Won = 3000 American dollars???

Excuse my math if it's wrong, btw... It's been a while since I've traveled between my home country and I haven't had to translate money in a while.

Around 30000 Dollars

it would be super useful if this course taught u the values of stuff accurately too - id love to know how much a loaf of bread ACTUALLY costs (seems more like 삼천원).

ig for anyone who wants to know tho, 1,000 won is CLOSE to a dollar, so if you just lower the number by one set of decimal places (our numbers work in thousands - a thousand becomes one, a million becomes a thousand, a billiom becomes a million) then you're good. Then, won is just a little less valusable than USD, so the prices on stuff are a tiny bit higher numerically (9 usd -> 10 (thousand) won)
