If the numbers 1 to 5 are written out in words: one, two, three, four, five, then there are 3 + 3 + 5 + 4 + 4 = 19 letters used in total.
If all the numbers from 1 to 1000 (one thousand) inclusive were written out in words, how many letters would be used?
NOTE: Do not count spaces or hyphens. For example, 342 (three hundred and forty-two) contains 23 letters and 115 (one hundred and fifteen) contains 20 letters. The use of “and” when writing out numbers is in compliance with British usage.
如果把1到5写成英文单词，分别是：one, two, three, four, five，这些单词一共用了3 + 3 + 5 + 4 + 4 = 19个字母。
注意： 不要算上空格和连字符。例如，342（three hundred and forty-two）包含23个字母，而115（one hundred and fifteen）包含20个字母。单词“and”的使用方式遵循英式英语的规则。
