Your attempt is correct! You get an A+

What are possible grades if there are 12 of them?
Can I assume the 12 grades are "F, F+, E, E+, D, D+, C, C+, B, B+, A, A+"?

Your assumption is also correct...you get another A+...you´re such a showoff!

Sorry, you may have got an A+ in American English, but in British English it´s only an A. (But still a good grade!!)
We would normally say "and" between the hundred and the eighty, and "and sixteen" at the end.
Think of it like we say all the millions, putting in any "and" where necessary, then we do the same with the thousands, then we do the same with what´s left over.
We might also put in commas after million and thousand.
We would also normally hyphenate eightythree
So:
Thirteen million, nine hundred and eightythree thousand, eight hundred and sixteen.
The commas are optional.
525983816 would be
Five hundred and twentyfive million, nine hundred and eightythree thousand, eight hundred and sixteen.
The same principle goes when adding 3 more significant figures:
133525983816 would be
One hundred and thirtythree billion, five hundred and twentyfive million, nine hundred and eightythree thousand, eight hundred and sixteen.
etc.

Marion,
Thanks for this info. But I cannot still get it through. There is a question somewhere and I tried all of the following but all of them are rejected.
Thirteen million, nine hundred and eightythree thousand, eight hundred and sixteen Thirteen million nine hundred and eightythree thousand eight hundred and sixteen THIRTEEN MILLION NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTYTHREE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN THIRTEEN MILLION NINE HUNDRED EIGHTYTHREE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN THIRTEEN MILLION NINE HUNDRED EIGHTY THREE THOUSAND EIGHT HUNDRED SIXTEEN THIRTEEN MILLION, NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTYTHREE THOUSAND, EIGHT HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN
Question text is:
In the game of lottery 6 different numbers are chosen among 49. How many different combinations are there? Provide a formal(textbooklike) answer.
And I am very sure of the number.
? binomial(49,6) %1 = 13983816

does the answer have to be written as words? That seems strange to me. Commas are used to separate the digits:
13,983,816

I also tried it but no, it´s not accepted.
I just don´t understand what does "Provide a formal(textbooklike) answer." mean actually??

Perhaps they want you to provide the formula you used in order to calculate the answer.
