The English word "? " describing a number X
has the value of X points in SCRABBLE.
In a few cases, it is possible for a number to score its own point values using double/triple letter/word spaces:
ELEVEN is only worth 9, but a triple letter on any of E, L, N brings it to 11.
THIRTEEN is worth 11, but again tripling a one point tile brings it to 13.
SIXTEEN is worth 14, but again tripling a one point tile brings it to 16.
TWENTY is worth 10, but a double word score brings it to 20.
There may be more beyond 20 or including multiple bonus spaces. I may investigate on a scrabble board later.
Edit: TWENTY is not worth 10. 1+4+1+1+1+4=12
