The problems will arise due to different flavours of English having different rules for numbers. e.g. eight billion and nine is prime, although some folks wouldn't agree either on primality or the English used. I doubt it is the first.

Is a billion 1,000,000,000,000 or merely 1,000,000,000 ?
Is it three hundred two vs three hundred and two.
