Writing a rhetorical piece for my high school english class, I wanted to emphasize the sheer increase from 10 million to approximately 2 billion.
Conveniently, 10 million is 200 times smaller than 2 billion. That makes a nice, clean number to work with, even though it really doesn't have any significance on the quesiton I'm asking here.
What I wanted to do is to say something like this:
means two times as many. The pattern appears to be placing the number before
Yet, with something like two hundred, how should I space, hyphenate and spell it correctly?
Just wondering because I'm a little ocd about this and would like to get it right.
