Rules for Writing out Numbers

I was taught that you spell out numbers under 10 and any numbers over 10 you use numerals. And generally this rule will help you in your day-to-day writing, but there are exceptions. Click here1 for Lynn Gaertner-Johnston's article Rules on Writing Numbers.

Thanks so much for this! I always thought the rule was write out anything under ten, but was unsure about everything else. Great resource!
