    Unhappy Re: What does this mean?

    Hi...
    Could any one please tell me why there should be a hyphen (-) between the numbers twenty and five? What does the sentence mean? Thanks...

    Firstly, numbers are usually written that way.
    25,066 = Twenty-five thousand and sixty-six.

    A hand-mixed product might be something like a cake mix, or perhaps a cake. She made up the recipe, and mixed all the flour and sugar, etc. at home. "Hand-mixed" sometimes means "home-made", ie. not made in a factory.
    So, she had 25 different products like this, and she opened a shop selling them.
