This "over" form is also widely used in mathematics. Numbers with a decimal point may be read as a cardinal number, then "and", then another cardinal number followed by an indication of the significance of the second cardinal number mainly U.
The indication of significance takes the form of the denominator of the fraction indicating division by the smallest power of ten larger than the second cardinal.
This is modified when the first cardinal is zero, in which case neither the zero nor the "and" is pronounced, but the zero is optional in the "point" form of the fraction.
Fractions together with an integer are read as follows: The above rules are not always followed. In literature, larger numbers might be spelled out. On the other hand, digits might be more commonly used in technical or financial articles, where many figures are discussed.
In particular, the two different forms should not be used for figures that serve the same purpose; for example, it is inelegant to write, "Between day twelve and day 15 of the study, the population doubled. Colloquial English has a small vocabulary of empty numbers that can be employed when there is uncertainty as to the precise number to use, but it is desirable to define a general range: These are derived etymologically from the range affixes: The prefix "ump-" is added to the first two suffixes to produce the empty numbers "umpteen" and "umpty": There is a noticeable absence of an empty number in the hundreds range.
Usage of empty numbers: The word "umpteen" may be used as an adjective, as in "I had to go to umpteen stores to find shoes that fit. It can appear in the form "umpty-one" parallelling the usage in such numbers as "twenty-one"as in "There are umpty-one ways to do it wrong.
The word "zillion" may be used as an adjective, modifying a noun. The noun phrase normally contains the indefinite article "a", as in "There must be a zillion pages on the World Wide Web. In this case, the construction is parallel to the one for "millions" or "billions", with the number used as a plural count noun, followed by a prepositional phrase with "of", as in "There are zillions of grains of sand on the beaches of the world.
Some empty numbers may be modified by actual numbers, such as "four zillion", and are used for jest, exaggeration, or to relate abstractly to actual numbers.
Empty numbers are colloquial, and primarily used in oral speech or informal contexts. They are inappropriate in formal or scholarly usage.Write the amount using numbers (see the red number one in the picture above). Write the amount using words (see the red number two in the image above).
First, write the amount in numeric form in the dollar box, located on the right side of your check next to the dollar sign (“$”). A) Look at the following numeric and word forms. • in writing is one thousand four hundred.
• 23 in writing is twenty-three thousand seven hundred fifty-six. • 45 in writing is forty-five thousand nine hundred twenty-one. • in writing is seven hundred sixty-two thousand three hundred sixty- seven.
• 3 in writing is three million four hundred thirty-six. The blank line in the middle of the check is for you to write out the amount of dollars and cents in words, for example “One hundred thirty-five & 50/” The box to the right of this line is where you write the numerical value of payment, so in this case, "".
“One Million Two Hundred Thirty-four Thousand Five Hundred Sixty-seven and 89/ dollars.” I’d have to write it small to fit it on the check! If I were to need to express it in writing for other uses (report, prose, etc), I’d write.
I'm British, but I can answer for the UK and US: $ — a hundred dollars or one hundred dollars?
