# Shall I use the conjunction, and in money amount?

I am filling in this textual amount on a cheque: (\$32100)

I have learnt how to write numbers in words in school, for example,
101, it is one hundred and one
1010, it is one thounsand and one hundred

So, for this big number, 32100, I think it should be

thirty two thousand and one hundred

But Google told me that I should write this instead:

thirty-two thousand one hundred

Is it wrong to use And?

• Either is fine. Some people write the "and", and some people don't. Personally, I avoid writing checks if possible. May 27, 2017 at 16:24
• 1010 is "one thousand and ten" or "one thousand ten" not "one thousand and one hundred" which is 1100. May 27, 2017 at 16:31
• The and only goes between the hundreds and the tens. What google found was right in this case. If the amount had been: 32,101, you'd end up with two ands and that would be a mistake: thirty two thousand one hundred and one. NOT: thirty two thousand AND one hundred and one. May 27, 2017 at 17:02
