I know that there are (at least) three options to read this number - 2500:
A. two thousand, five hundred
B. two thousand and five hundred
C. twenty-five hundred
Q1) Is "C" considered to be an informal way of reading it?
Q2) Is it ok to read this number (2501) as *twenty-five hundred one/twenty-five hundred and one?
Q3) I want to investigate more into the idea of reading numbers using the "C" way. Is it considered to be an informal use? I'm looking for links/references or just the title of the concept so I can run a search.
