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!Mar 29 2006 04:19:53

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

Say

one thousand, five hundred and sixty-four dollars and ninety-four cents?Best wishes, Clive

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?

jeff_999And 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 advance

AnonymousNo, 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.

nona the britjeff_999$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.

Best wishes, Clive
