When we say numbers beginning with "1" (eg 100), why do we sometimes say "1" and sometimes "a"?
For example, it is ok to say either "a hundred" or "one hundred", but it would be strange to say "a hundred and twenty three thousand".. Is there a rule?
"a" is a singular word, in many cases it can replace the word "one" because it holds the same meaning:
A apple = 1 apple
A house = 1 house
