Tip: Numbers under 100 should usually (but not always) be written out. If you’re starting a sentence with a number, that should be written out or, if you can’t (like in a year – 2017), rewrite the sentence so it doesn’t start with the number. If you’re using a percentage—10 percent—always use a number. I know, grammar rules don’t make a lot of sense, but for now, it’s what we have to go by and these come from the Chicago Manual of Style.
