Tip 59. Use numerals for numbers rather than words

People read numerals more quickly than they read words. So when you write a number, use the numeral rather than the word.

For example, rather than writing out “seven” in letters — “s”, “e”, “v”, “e”, “n” — use the numeral “7”.

Do this even for the number 1 and even if the number starts or ends a sentence.
