I think there is a mistake in the bill, or on the bill?

Thanks.

I would say "There is a mistake in the bill", not "on the bill".

I wouldn't even blink to hear it one way or the other, but I think that, like Paco, I would say "in the bill".

Thanks to both. I have seen both usages on the Interent, so I asked.

Hi,

Using Google, "mistake in the bill" has 494 hits. "mistake on the bill" has 302 hits.

So, the former also is more common according to the Internet.

Yours,

The reason I choose "in the bill" is that we would say "mistakes in the book/the sentence" rather than "mistakes on the book/the sentence".

Hi,

Just curious.

Is it possible to use "on" with the meanining of "about"?

e.g. "The most commonly assumed mistake on the bill is ...."

Best regards,

Zeyar
I think "mistaks on ... " is commoner than "mistakes about ... ".
