Pleased if u help
Should I write 36,751 million or millions?
I am confused between the two, can you help?
Should I write 8 hundreds or hundred and what's the difference?

Write 36,751 million and 8 hundred.

6 hundred dollars/people/books.
6 million dollars/people/books.
'dollars/people/books' are all nouns. It's those words that take the plural -s.
36,751 million dollars
8 hundred dollars
All the best,
If the number is not specific, you use the plural:
Millions of people...
100 million people...
I'm not sure about 'specific', and even though it sounds fairly interesting--something to keep in mind, to me, it's a word's function which determines whether it takes plural -s or not:

100 million people ('million' functions as an adjective. :D)
All the best, :D
