• The difference is what you learnt in school is the Western Numbering system, and the one mentioned in this video is the Indian system.
Let me tell up to 7 places-
In the Western System, it goes- "Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten thousands, Hundred Thousands,Millions (1-10-100-1,000-10,000-100,000-1,000,000)".
In the Indian System it goes- "Ones, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, Ten Thousands, Lakhs, Ten Lakhs
(1-10-100-1,000-10,000-1,00,000-10,00,000)"
Note that there is a difference in making the commas too!

Hope this helps!
