Some people use a comma to mark every 3 digits. It just keeps track of the digits and makes the numbers easier to read.
Beyond a million, the names of the numbers differ depending where you live. The places are grouped by thousands in America and France, by the millions in Great Britain and Germany.

Fractions
Digits to the right of the decimal point represent the fractional part of the decimal number. Each place value has a value that is one tenth the value to the immediate left of it.
Number  Name  Fraction 
.1  tenth  1/10 
.01  hundredth  1/100 
.001  thousandth  1/1000 
.0001  ten thousandth  1/10000 
.00001  hundred thousandth  1/100000 
Examples:
0.234 = 234/1000 (said – point 2 3 4, or 234 thousandths, or two hundred thirty four thousandths)
4.83 = 4 83/100 (said – 4 point 8 3, or 4 and 83 hundredths)


I=1  (I with a bar is not used)  
V=5  _ V=5,000 

X=10  _ X=10,000 

L=50  _ L=50,000 

C=100  _ C = 100 000 

D=500  _ D=500,000 

M=1,000  _ M=1,000,000 
Examples:
1 = I2 = II
3 = III 4 = IV 5 = V 6 = VI 7 = VII 8 = VIII 9 = IX 10 = X 
11 = XI12 = XII
13 = XIII 14 = XIV 15 = XV 16 = XVI 17 = XVII 18 = XVIII 19 = XIX 20 = XX 21 = XXI 
25 = XXV30 = XXX
40 = XL 49 = XLIX 50 = L 51 = LI 60 = LX 70 = LXX 80 = LXXX 90 = XC 99 = XCIX 
There is no zero in the roman numeral system.
The numbers are built starting from the largest number on the left, and adding smaller numbers to the right. All the numerals are then added together.
The exception is the subtracted numerals, if a numeral is before a larger numeral, you subtract the first numeral from the second. That is, IX is 10 – 1= 9.
This only works for one small numeral before one larger numeral – for example, IIX is not 8, it is not a recognized roman numeral.
There is no place value in this system – the number III is 3, not 111.

Each digit can only count up to the value of one less than the base. In hexadecimal, the letters A – F are used to represent the digits 10 – 15, so they would only use one character.
