if I have a number like "22222834", can I say "five two's eight three four"?
Or do I have to say "two two two two two eight three four"?
I think the second one is quite clumsy, because I have to count how many "two"s have I said but if I use the first one, I'm afraid that people may think that I said "52834".
I think the first choice is the right one. Another way could be saying "five times two, eight, three four etc..."
Thank you very much!!
