How to use "A hundred thousand" in context?
When we think of numbers, it is usually easier to think in terms of smaller numbers. One, two, three, four. These are all very familiar to us and it is usually easy to think of ways to combine them.
However, there are also a hundred thousand. This number still exists in our world, but we don't often think about it. Why is that?
One reason is that it is a large number. For example, it takes ten thousand bees to produce one hundred pounds of honey. Or, it takes ten barrels of oil to make one hundred thousand gallons.
