    Question amount of money written in capital

    Hello!

    If I need to fill in a form about the amount of money in capital, How should I write them properly, for example $ 1000. 22.

    Ten Hundred _???__ US dollar.

    I have the problem about the decimal digital expression in capital.


    Thanks!

    This is how the amount is written on a cheque/check:

    USD One thousand and cents twenty two only.

    or, where more numbers are involved, say US$ 1999.99 :

    USD One thousand nine hundred and ninety nine and cents ninety nine only

    The dollars/cents are put in front.
    There is no need to capitalize every word.

    not a teacher

    Yikes, I forgot a question. If the money unit is pound or euro, how do I write the unit of the digital numerals.

    For example: 1999.99 (pound/euro)

    Thanks!

    Here on a cheque you would write: One thousand nine hundred and ninety-nine pounds/euros and ninety-nine pence/cents only.
