    Re: Please write the total quantity in words and figures.

    You need the definite article there because you are referring to a specific total quantity - the one that you want the person to write in words and numbers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Please write the total quantity in words and figures.

    In brief instructions on forms you may find the article omitted.
