# Number to words | Program to convert a given number to words

Program to convert a given number to words is discussed here. For example, if “1234” is given as input, the output should be “one thousand two hundred and thirty four”.

Sample input: 2
Sample output: two

Sample input: 9923
Sample output: nine thousand nine hundred twenty three
