Business Communications - English 101

posted by .

Should the sentence containing the word three be 3 instead. The rules states to use numbers that follow an identifying noun. I don't quite understand if "these" is considered identifying but I believe two or three should be written in words.

If I should have to be out over the next two or three days, would you check with these three for me?

    Yes, they should be written out.

    You're very welcome!

    I usually start with their index and then look up whatever I need to learn or explain:
