    Question I'm not sure whether it is right.

    This month, my boss want get his salary half in dollars and half in euros.

    I am not sure whether the prep. "in" is the right word.

    Can I use the prep. with?

    .... And how to express the meanings accurately if one exact amount added in the sentence?


    Thanks.

    Hi, sevenfifa! Welcome to the forums!

    "This month my boss wants to get half of his salary in dollars and the other half in euros."

    'In' works better than 'with' in this particular example.

    Cheers,
    Amigo
