Hi there

Can anyone please correct for me the usage of these. I am a bit confused

(7, 2, 3...etc) months / (7, 2, 3 ... etc) month / (seven, two, three ... etc) months / (seven, two, three ... etc) months ???

Thank you

It doesn't matter whether you use 7 or seven, it will still be followed by a plural. The exception is when you use them as an adjective, when they will be hyphenated: a seven-month stay. If it's not hyphenated, use the plural.
