Hi,

Are you saying that you don't understand some of those sentences? Which ones?

Why don't you write some sentences yourself and post them here. We will check them for you.

Best wishes, Clive
Thank your editting. Firstly, you said correctly with my trouble. I don't know how to use the number "6" in those examples. The dictionary don't tell me which speech of number 6 is? just: Number and some examples.
Here my enquiry:

Thank you two or thank you all.
The using of "two" and "all" in two sentences.
all of you. two you, or you two... It's so confusing.

Six is a noun, and it is also an adjective in front of a noun.

I needed eggs. I bought six. I bought six eggs.

I want to thank the six of you.

I want to thank all six of you.

I want to thank all of you.

I want to thank six of you.

I want to thank you six.

I want to thank six of you.

I want to thank you six.

Clive, if you don't mind, you can explain these using of "six". As I see:
I want to thank the six of you: means that six people stand in a group including more six people.
I want to thank all six of you: means that the group include six people and I thank all of them.
I want to thank all of you: what are the differences between this sentence and "I want to thank you all"?
The differences between "I want to thank the six of you" and "I want to thank six of you"?
or the differences between "I want to thank six of you" and "I want to thank you six"?
Thank you very much. Emotion: smile
Hi,

if you don't mind, you can explain these using of "six". As I see:

I want to thank the six of you: means that six people stand in a group including more six people. It means the speaker is talking to six people. It doesn't mean there are more than six people there.

I want to thank all six of you: means that the group include six people and I thank all of them. Yes.

I want to thank all of you: what are the differences between this sentence and "I want to thank you all"? None.

The differences between "I want to thank the six of you" and "I want to thank six of you"? The latter means there are more than six people in the group that is being addressed.

or the differences between "I want to thank six of you" and "I want to thank you six"? In the former, there are more than six people in the group being addressed. In the latter, there are just six.

Im saying in a sentence that read, " please bring twenty-five mugs or read 25 mugs. I forgot the rule on when your write out numbers.
Hi,

There's no rule, just suggestions for style. Here, I'd write the number '25'.

CliveHi,

There are rules. I don't agree with all of them.

1. Write out the numbers up to nine, unless there are other numbers written as numerals. There are nine cats. There were 25 cats but now there are only 9.

2. Numbers 10 or greater are written as numerals.

3. Write numerals for simple fracitions, such as: one-half; complex fractions are written as numeral: 5/32 not five thirty-seconds. I'm not sure where the line is drawn between complex and simple. Take your best guess. I don't think anyone knows or cares.

4. Write compound fractions as numerals: 5-1/2

5. Large numbers should be written in the simplest way except that if the first part is one-nine, then it is written out: One million, five million, 30 million

I've seen various forms of these rules and this is one issue that I am not a stickler about. Also, it depends on context. In architectural drawings, numbers are always written as numerals. 3 coat stucco for instance...not three coat stucco.
