    Default convert numbers to text?

    This should be a simple program for some of you, I must convert an input of any number between 1 and 100 to it's text and output it to screen, for example, if user enters 24, I output "twenty four" etc, any suggestions? or is it a case of entering a lot of data into my programme? I'm a beginner!!!!
    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    Use arrays of Strings: "one", "two" etc and "twenty", "thirty" etc.
    Perform math on the entered number to get the index of the array.
