Can you give cases/instances in which we can use twenty-five hundred instead of two thousand five hundred?
And give cases too in which we can't do it.

I mean can we say There were fifteen hundred people at the party?

Hi,

Can you give cases/instances in which we can use twenty-five hundred instead of two thousand five hundred?

And give cases too in which we can't do it.

I mean can we say There were fifteen hundred people at the party? Yes. This is very common, particulrly in speech.

It's just largely a matter of how much formality we want to use.

eg Am I speaking to my wife, or am I speaking to the Queen of England?

I don't feel a difference in formality, Clive.
