    Re: Reading figures

    Thank you bhai...
    I was wondering... what if the street number is a four digit number, for instance 7230? Would you read it seventy-two thirty?
    and in the case of a three digit number 723?

    Thanks for your ever-prompt attention you give my requests!

    Yes, I would say seventy-two thirty and seven twenty-three or seven hundred and twenty-three.
