What to say


We often say "a" instead of "one".
For example when we have the numbers 100 or 1/2 we say "A hundred" or "A half".

For example:
11/2 - "One and a half."

When pronouncing decimals we use the word point to represent the dot. The numbers following the dot are pronounced separately.

For example:

When you have the number 1.36 we say "One point three six."
