    $150,000

    Hi,

    I read this sentence online:

    He set aside $150,000 for future investment.

    How do you read the bold phrase? 150,000 dollars or 150,000 dollar?

    Say 'one hundred and fifty thousand dollars' or 'a hundred and fifty thousand dollars'.

    Or:

    a hundred fifty thousand dollars.

    (That's the way I would say it.)

    The version without 'and' is predominantly North American English usage.
