Hi
I usually use my checkcard to buy stuff and rarely use my checkbook. But when I have to write I am not quite confident about it.
For ex:
if the amount is $25.00 then I write: twenty five and 00/100...........Dollars.
if the amount is $2,525.00 then I write two thousand five hundred and twenty five - Do I need to include and 00/100?
If the amount is $2,525.25 then I write two thousand five hundred and twenty five and 25/100?
Can someone show me the right way to write in large amount with cents?
Thanks,
Ky

For $2,525.25, the proper way to write it is "Two thousand five hundred twenty-five and 25/100". Some people will write it like this: "Twenty-five hundred twenty-five and 25/100". Notice that I don't put the word "and" after hundred, although many people do, especially in spoken English. It is not necessary, though. By the way, you can also use an ampersandEmotion: doginstead of the word "and" before the cents; i.e., "& 25/100".

If you have an amount with no cents, for example, $746.00, you can write either "Seven hundred forty-six and no/100," [or "... 00/100"], or "Seven hundred forty-six only". You can leave it off entirely, i.e., "Seven hundred forty-six," but it is generally recommended to write the cents as a fraction over 100, because this prevents someone from altering it later. For example, if you write a check for $10.00, and write simply "Ten," it is very easy for someone to write "thousand" after that, and you would not be very happy. Emotion: smile

I'm an elementary school teacher, and Dino is absolutely right... (except for the part about it being okay to write 2500, etc. as "Twentyfive Hundred"). He was right when he said a number such as this should be written as "Two Thousand Five Hundred". Try to remember that the word "and" is only used before the cent amount of ?/100. I second him when I say that if your check is for a round number, always write the word "Only" after. Also, never write the word "Dollars" on a check, as it already there or implied. One last anal comment... each word should start with a capital letter on a check. Instead of "two thousand"... blah blah, it should be "Two Thousand..." Now go write some checks!! lol
