One thousand is a number equal to 1,000, or 103.[1] The term came from Old English "þusend," from Proto-Germanic "thusundi", which was likely an indefinite number meaning "many".[2] A thousand is used as a base in the widely used -illion naming system, since all -illions are powers of a thousand.

One thousand sheets of paper is called a bundle.[3]
