# Numbers in the series: The British way

What are the next two numbers in series?

Six hundred and forty

Five thousand

Eight thousand

What are the next two numbers? Is this a trick question?

Note: I am using the UK way of numbering that includes "and". Unlike us Americans who write many different ways :)

So it looks like

Each number you've written contains each vowel exactly once.

Which means the next two numbers are (I think)

Nine thousand
Twenty-six thousand

I think number in sequence is :

9000, 80,000 ( Nine Thousand , Eighty Thousand)

Reasoning :

I observed in above sequence all numbers contains every vowels ("a,e,i,o,u") only onces all other number after 9000 contains fews vowels or repeated vowels if we check . Nine Thousand is made up of (a,e,i,o,u) ,same for Eighty Thousand .

• 26000? What about that number?
