  • 450: nalagu vandala yābhai(నాలుగు వందల యాభై)

Also, keep in mind that much written Telugu nowadays uses English numerals rather than Telugu numerals.

Numbers referring to peopleEdit

When refering to groups of people(such as "you both" or "the three of them"), the suffix -guru must be added.

  • Two people: iddaru(ఇద్దరు)
  • Three people: muggaru(ముగ్గురు)
  • The rest of the numbers can simply be created by adding the -guru suffix
    • Four people: naluguru(నలుగురు)
    • Five people: aiduguru(ఐదుగురు)
