    Question when can I use the HYPHEN?

    hi, I'd like that you could clear some doubts that I have!

    1- How can I say the times as they're showed in the example:

    - 3:05
    - 3:15
    - 3:25
    - 3:30

    In which of them can I use the hyphen?


    2- How about the prices?

    - $42,50
    - $30,15

    Can i use the "and"? as in the second example: "It's thirty dollars AND fifteen cents or It's thirty AND fifteen"

    Or is it like this: "It's thirty fifteen?
