Naturally, 7 beats 6 by 1.
And, of course, 700 beats 600.
Why then, does 71 not beat 67?
Answer71 doesn't beat 67 because the others beat their counterparts based on the NUMBER OF SYLLABLES in the number when sounded out.
SEVEN beats SIX in syllables, by 1.
SEVEN-HUNDRED of course, beats SIX-HUNDRED (4 syllables vs. 3)
However, SEVENTY-ONE and SIXTY-SEVEN are equal in syllables, with 4 each.
