It's no trick. By the way, the second number is mathematical - it's not an amount of money.

Three thousand, six hundred and thirty-two.

Three point six three two.

I am writing the numbers the same way that I would say them, the simplest way possible.

In a medical setting it is very important to clarify the decimal point.

If there wasn't a whole number before the decimal, I would hold its place with a 0.
And say.

Zero point three six three two.

I do it the same. Osric Pearl leaves out the 'and' - I wondered if it was an American thing. I always say 'and' before the last number if it is from 1 to 99.

Would you never say "Trois milles six cents et trente deux" ?

Would you never say "Trois milles six cents et trente deux" ?

Adding the "and" at the last bit is normal and everyone does it here in the US, but it isn't the proper way of writing it. "And" is the period. That is why I wrote the second number as "3 and..."

If we are going to be proper about it, shouldn't it really be written as Three and six hundred thirty-two thousandths of a percent.

Lol...it sound best in French, no matter which way you say it!

I once saw an American write a number, verbally, without using 'and' but I've never heard or seen that done in Britain. The period is the decimal point and I'd always say 'point'. On the Continent they use a comma instead, so three point two five is 3,25. Traditionally, we use a comma between each three digits, like 4,000,600 = four milllion, six hundred. But it's becoming common to leave it out or use a space instead.

Yes. It's been a long time since I had to write it out. I forgot the "ths" lol. LOL 2

We also use commas between three digits. I think that the internet and electronic screes are making it less common because you can just use spaces.
