Dear Masters:

Long time no see. I hope all of you are quite well. Here I got a question again: how to spell the number correctly.

For example:

USD1564.94

Can I say:

USD one thousan five hundred and sixty four point nine four;

or USD one thousand five hundred sixty-four point nine four;

or USD one thousand five hundred sixty-four and ninty four cents?

Are they all correct? Or which one is the most standard to say? Thank you very much for your help!

Hi,

Welcome back.

USD1564.94

Can I say:

USD one thousan five hundred and sixty four point nine four;

or USD one thousand five hundred sixty-four point nine four;

For money, you say 'cents', not 'point'.

Say one thousand, five hundred and sixty-four dollars and ninety-four cents?

Best wishes, Clive

Thank you, Clive. Thank you so much for your reply.

For USD1564.94

So there's no need to put USD in the front; just say ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-FOUR US DOLLARS AND NINETY-FOUR CENTS, right?
Thank you, Clive. Thank you so much for your reply.

Reg. USD1564.94

Hello all,

And when it is a formal document , do we have to write the numbers as a single word? For example in an invoice would it be like;

only onethousandfivehundredsixtyfivedollars and nintyfourcents

thanks in advanceEmotion: smile
No you don't put USD at the start (but you might want to use American dollars if there is any possibility of confusion over which currency you mean).

No, you don't join all the words up.

But on an invoice, or most documents, you wouldn't write the amount in this way. You would write the figures.

Oh yes! On some documents. If the amount is required in that way, how can we write it correctly? Thank you!
Hi,

$1,564.94 US

The comma is often omitted. You would also omit the 'US' if you were writing in the USA, for example, where US currency is assumed.
