## Counting above 19[edit]

### Counting from 21 to 400[edit]

1-20 is considered the 1st 20. When counting in the 1st of any 20th section, that section is not specified. Also, increasing sections are said later in the number.

- 20
- Jun may

'Jun may' means 'One twenty'.

- 21
- Jun xcab c'al

21 is the 1st number of the 2nd 20. The K'ekchi' word means '1 2nd 20'. 21 is in the 2nd 20 because 1-20 is the first 20, and thus 21-39 is the 2nd 20 range.

- 39
- belelaju xcab c'al

The K'ekchi' word means '19 2nd 20'.

- 40
- rox c'al

The K'ekchi' word means '3rd 20' because 40 is the start of the 3rd set of 20s.

- 399
- belelaju xbelelaju c'al

The K'ekchi' word means '19 19th 20'.

- 400
- ok'ob

One more value higher would require a new section. Consider that from 1-400 we've been in the 1st 400.

### Counting from 401-127,999,999[edit]

- 401
- jun xcab ok'ob

The K'ekchi' word means '1 2nd 400'.

- 15599
- belelaju xbelelaju c'al xcaukxaklaju ok'ob

The K'ekchi word means '19 19th 20 18th 400'

- 15600
- xcaukxaklaju ok'ob

The K'ekchi word means '19th 400'

- 15,999
- belelaju xbelelaju c'al xbelelaju ok'ob

The K'ekchi' word means '19 19th 20 19th 400'

- 127,999,999
- belelaju xbelelaju c'al xbelelaju chuy xbelelaju c'alab xbelelaju quinchil xbelelaju alau

This is the largest number I can say. There would need to be a number name for 128,000,000; the equivalent to 10,000,000_{20} or 20^{7}.
