‘Two thousand four hundred' or we canalso call it as Twenty Four hundred in English. For example, if we want to read 2400, we would say, “this number is two thousand four hundred.” 2400 is a natural number. In mathematics, natural numbers are those which start with 1. It is a 2-digit number with different place values, i.e., the digit’s position in a number.

2400 is a natural and even number. An even number gives zero as a remainder or divisible by 2.One-digit even numbers are 0, 2, 4, 6, and 8. Other numbers ending with any of them are also even numbers.

A number whose remainder will be zero when divided by another number, including 1 and itself, is called a composite number. For example, 15 can be divided by 1, itself (15), 3, and 5 and the remainder will be zero. With the following definition, we can say, 2400 is also a composite number.

2400 is divisible by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, etc. Divisibility is defined when we divide a number by another number such that the remainder comes to be zero. For example, if we divide 21 by 3, the remainder will be zero. Hence, we can say that 21 is divisible by 3.

The place value specifies a digit’s position in a number. Take an example of the number 278 such that ‘2’, ‘7’ and ‘8’ have different positions, i.e., they have different place values. ‘2’ has the place value of ‘hundreds’, ‘7’ has the place value of ‘tens’, and ‘8’ has the place value of ‘ones’.

For numbers with more than three digits, we have thousand, ten thousand, etc. to denote the place values of each digit in a number. The below table represents the various place values:

Ten Thousand | Thousand | Hundred | Tens | Ones |

10000 | 1000 | 100 | 10 | 1 |

Therefore, for the number 2400, we have the following place values:

Thousand | Hundred | Tens | Ones |

2 | 4 | 0 | 0 |

The number 2400 can be written in words with the help of place values described above. From the table, it is evident that ‘2’ is in the ‘thousand’ place, ‘4’ has the ‘hundred’ place, and ‘0s’ are in the ‘tens’ and ‘ones’ places.

Therefore, the expansion of the number 2400 is:

\begin{aligned}

&2 \times \text { Thousand }+4 \times \text { Hundred } + 0 \times \text { Ten }+0 \times \text { One } \\

&=2 \times 1000+4 \times 100 + 0 \times 10 + 0 \times 1 \\

&=2400 \\

&=\text {Two Thousand Four Hundred }

\end{aligned}

2. What are natural numbers? Is 2400 a natural number?

Natural numbers are those which start from 1 and end at infinity. 2400 is also a natural number.

3. How to write 2400 in words?

2400 is written as “two thousand four hundred” in words.

4. Is 2400 a perfect square?

No, it is not a perfect square. An integer will be called a perfect square when its square root is also an integer number. For example, the square root of 36 is 6, which means that 36 is a perfect square.

5. Is 2400 a perfect cube?

No, it is not a perfect cube. A perfect cube is an integer whose cube root is also an integer number. For example, the cube root of 27 is 3, which implies that 27 is a perfect cube.
