In $3 , \textcolor{t e a l}{2} 65 , 820$ the first 2 reads as 2 hundred thousand.

#### Explanation:

Each group of three digits (separated by commas) has a place holder for Hundreds, Tens, Units.

We have $\textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} .$

In case case the groups represent the number of:

$\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{\text{trillions",)color(black)("billions",)color(magenta)("millions",)color(teal)("thousands",)color(sienna)("units} ,} .$

$\textcolor{\mathmr{and} a n \ge}{H T U ,} \textcolor{b l a c k}{H T U ,} \textcolor{m a \ge n t a}{H T U ,} \textcolor{t e a l}{H T U ,} \textcolor{s i e \cap a}{H T U ,} .$
$\textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} , \textcolor{red}{H} \textcolor{b l u e}{T} \textcolor{p u r p \le}{U} .$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{000000000000 , 00} 3 , 2 \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} 6 \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} 5 , 8 \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} 2 \textcolor{w h i t e}{.} 0$

In $3 , \textcolor{t e a l}{2} 65 , 820$ the first 2 reads as 2 hundred thousand.
