    year-old

    Joe is 15-year-old.
    Joe is 15-year-old girl.

    Are they both correct?
    If I make any mistakes in English, please let me know! Please! Thank you!

    Note that it's always helpful to number sentences when you present us with more than one option.

    They are both wrong.

    1. Joe is 15 years old.
    2. Joe is a 15-year-old girl.

    Note that "Joe" is an unusual name for a girl. It's usually "Joe" for a male and "Jo" for a female (that's normally a contraction of "Joanne" or "Joanna").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
