You count the characters from the right. Take for example 78797521:

521 = hundred value; five hundred twenty-one
797 = thousand value; seven hundred ninety-seven thousand
78 = million value; seventy-eight million

Put together you have seventy-eight million, seven hundred ninety-seven thousand, five hundred twenty-one.

I hope this helps.
