Hi,
could you tell me how to read the following numbers:

107
170
1007
1070
1700
1701
17587

If the number has more than one correct reading, plz inform

Thanks
nona the britAnon is not quite right here.

You need all the 'and's that Mr M put in.

I was always thought where I live(MI, U.S.) that "and" is only to be used for a decimal place.
Ex. 1.3 One and three tenths
Actually, the only proper purpose for "and" when reading numbers is when reading a mixed number like 2 3/4, which would read "two and three fourths." This also applies when reading a decimal as a fraction, like 2.34, which could read either "two and thirty-four hundredths" or "two point three four."

I am not the same Anon by the way.

Hey people. Could somebody help me? How do I read aloud decimals accurately? I mean, e.g. 4.2

Do I read: "four spot two" or "four dot two" or "four point two"? If it depends, on what does it depend on?
Hi,

Only four point two is correct.

Best wishes, Clive

Hi,

45,900

If it is a quantity, use the comma as shown and say

forty-five thousand, nine hundred

But if it is not a quantity,but instead is eg a serial number on a product, say

four five nine zero zero
