Anonymous asked: Why do people type 1 thousand as 100k bc I read that as one hundred thousand ergh
k means times 10 because k is the 11th letter of the alphabet. so 100k = 1000.
I KNOW YOU’RE JOKING BUT THIS IS FRUSTRATING
K MEANS KILO, AS IN KILOGRAM, KILO=1000
no sorry im right youre wrong k is the 11th letter of the alphabet so 100k = 1000
okay. let’s do a thing here. America is weird, K = kilo. 100k = 100,000. not 1,000. 1k = 1,000. one thousand is ten hundred. one hundred k is one hundred thousand. one k is one thousand. get it sweetheart?
okay “sweetheart” but you’re wrong too. k is definitely the 11th letter of the alphabet. I know my alphabet really well.
But 1k is 1,000 and 100k is 100,000 have you not used twitter, it even says 1k when you have a thousand followers. The alphabet has nothing to do with it.
how are you guys still not getting this? k is the 11th letter of the alphabet so 100k = 1000
this is too hilarious i’m crying
