When you say 1,001,000, do you include 'and'?

English Language Learners Asked on January 4, 2022

Which is better, one million and one thousand or one million one thousand?
Or, do you use both?

Is there any difference BE and AE regarding this?

One Answer

"And" is only used after the hundreds (three hundred and twenty-five). Quite a few Americans will say three hundred twenty-five, especially in formal settings, because we had it drilled into our heads as children that and indicated the decimal. In practical terms this only ever mattered when writing a check/cheque, and it usually goes unnoticed in speech,

Otherwise there are no "and"s : "one million, one thousand."

(If you need to actually use this number once in your lifetime you have been very lucky)
