How To Write Out The Amount On A Check
In my previous post, I showed you how to write a check. Now, let’s talk about how to write out the amount on a check.
Below the “Pay To” line is a blank line. This line is used to write out the amount of the check in long form; spelling out the numbers.
When you write out the amount, you only write out the dollar amount, not the cents. The cents is written as a number over 100. For example, 39 cents would be written as 39/100.
A few things to remember:
Always start writing out the dollar amount at the beginning of the line. This prevents someone from changing the amount by writing an additional dollar amount at the beginning of the line.
After writing out the cents as xx/100, draw a line from this point to the end of any space left. This prevents someone from changing the amount on the check. For example, you would write out $25.67 as follows:
Twenty Five 67/100————————Dollars
One more point to make. When writing out the amount, there are two ways that you can write out the numbers and both are accepted. You can write out the numbers and include dashes or not include them. For example, to write out $1,239.00, you can write it two different ways:
One Thousand Two Hundred Thirty Nine 00/100
Or
OneThousand TwoHundred ThirtyNine 00/100
For extra help with learning how to write out the actual numbers, I have written a simple guide which shows how to write out any number from 1 to 10,000. It also contains examples of how to write out the numbers on a check and I include a few practice problems with the answers. Here’s a sample of what you will get:
There is a complete chart that shows the number on the left and how to write it out on the right. Below is a sample from the guide:

I like your website, it’s the best around regrading writing number out. Is your style predicated on MLA? I’ve been having a debate with a coworker about the use of the word ‘and’ when writing out dollars. I (American) use the word ‘and’ only to represent a decimal point. My coworker (Brit) uses it when writing out whole dollars and to represent a decimal point. For example, he writes: “One Hundred and Forty Thousand and Twenty Five Cents.” Is his use of the word ‘and’ in the first instance correct?

wouldn’t the proper way to say this be “one hundred and eighty dollars and 0 cents”?
no, it would be One Hundred Eighty Dollars. The word “and” is used to represent a decimal point. People use the word “and” in whole dollars which is incorrect. If you want to hear the proper way to pronounce $ watch Jeopardy. They always pronounce $ correctly and correctly use the word “and” to represent the decimal point. Cheers
