I know that using the word "and" in numbers is wrong (one hundred and ten) but I can't find a site that explains this. Especially since and is removed from web search parameters.

Anyone know of a site that explains this?

Sorry, but using 'and' in numbers is not wrong at all-- it is used extensively in spoken English and when writing bank cheques.
You are both correct. Emotion: smile

Using and saying (110) 'one hundred ten' is grammatically correct, and is the way the English language should read numbers.

However, the reality is that 99% of the English speaking world will say, and is even understood easier 'one hundred and ten'.

Hello Anon,

I'd be interested in hearing your source for saying it's incorrect to use "and" or where it says that we should read numbers that way.
how should i read the following No,1234567890
It doesn't appear to be a number that describes a quantity, so I'd say only "one two three four five six seven eight nine zero."

Hi,
110 - one hundred and ten (mainly British), one hundred ten (mainly American).

"and" is usually left out in American English when reading numbers. Emotion: smile

This is not my experience (or my habit) at all, Kooyeen. Where did you get this information?
I don't know where any of you are getting your information or how you all formed your habits.
All I can say is that I never use and in that context.

345 - three hundred forty-five
627 - six hundred twenty-seven
5763 - five thousand seven hundred sixty-three

(the year) 1975 - nineteen seventy-five

The only (semi-)exception is that on checks I write
One hundred seventy-five & 37/100 -----
(Dollars)
(I handwrite the ampersand. I don't write and.)

I have absolutely no objection to saying and after the hundreds, and I'm sure I've heard people say it that way, and that it sounds completely fine, but I never do myself!
