Talk:Names of numbers in English
People do sometimes use "and" to conjoin parts of the name of a number, but this is incorrect. Using "and" is only correct to conjoin the decimal portion of a number, e.g.:
1343.26 = One thousand three hundred forty-three and twenty-six hundredths.
Some people even say, "One thousand and three hundred and forty-three and twenty-six hundredths." This is obviously wrong and indeed quite horrible.
- Using "and" is correct in UK English. In UK English, 1343.26 would be spoken as One thousand three hundred and forty-three point two six. We would not convert the decimals to hundredths. Mock wurzel soup (talk) 09:25, 18 July 2018 (UTC)
