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

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.
