Apa writing numbers 6th edition
Style guidelines from the American Psychological Association help writers maintain a uniform way of writing. Because APA style is used for scientific and clinical writing, numbers are often included. Readers can more easily understand information when it is consistently communicated in one one way. Many rules also help save space. The most common and frequently used rule for writing numbers in APA style is determined by whether the number is under 10. All those numbers should be written out in word form, such as four or seven.
A number 10 and above is written as a numeral, such as 10, 17, 233. One of the exceptions to this rule is when a sentence starts with a number. In this case, the number is always written out as a word. Another exception to writing out numbers undSummary:APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences.
