1K Means in Hindi (Meaning of 1K)
K means (1K Meaning) thousand. That is, any number K written backward is counted in thousand. Ie

1K = 1,000 (one thousand)
5K = 5,000 (five thousand)
10K = 10,000 (ten thousand)
50K = 50,000 (fifty thousand)
100K = 100,000 (one lakh)
500K = 500,000 (Five Lakhs)
1M Means in Hindi (Meaning of 1M)
M means one million and if 2M means twenty lakhs. That is, the number behind M is counted in millions. Examples

1m Means

1M = 1,000,000 (1Million – million)
5M = 5,000,000 (5Million – Fifty million)
10M = 10,000,000 (10Million – One Crore)
100M = 100,000,000 (100Million – 100 million)
500M = 500,000,000 (500Million – 500 million)
1B Means in Hindi (Meaning of 1B)
Just like that

1B = 1,000,000,000 (1Billion)
10B = 10,000,000,000 (10Billion)
100B = 100,000,000,000 (100Billion)

Why use K and M?

1K means (1K Means) “one kilo”. In Greek, it means 1 thousand Kilo words originated from the Greek language “Khilioi”.

Its also a matter that if we write a thousand complete then it takes more space. While writing 1K instead, it takes up very little space.

This takes us a very short time to count any number. If a complete number is written in its place, then we will be confused about counting the number like zero.

Meaning there is no need to count many zeros, you can find directly from K and M.
