If your tutor asks you to convert numbers to words (i.e. 565 to a string "Five hundred and sixty-five") then you are not alone! This question gets asked here very frequently, so here is the simple, foolproof way to solve your problem. It shows the outline of how to do it, and it is then up to you to fill in the detail, comments etc. - otherwise every-bodies would look the same, and you might get caught for copying!
public static string ConvertToWords(int number)
return "Five hundred and sixty-eight";
return "Five hundred and sixty-nine";
throw new ArgumentOutOfRangeException("Number greater than infinity!");

I am indebted to Luc Pattyn for pointing out the error in versions before V3.0 regarding the placement of a hyphen between the tens and unit digits. He correctly pointed out here
