Work Step by Step

The word "and" should never be used when writing whole numbers. You will often hear someone say “five hundred and twenty-two,” but the use of “and” is not correct since “522” is a whole number. When you work with decimal numbers, the word "and" is used to show the position of the decimal point. For example, 98.6 is read as “ninety-eight and six tenths.”
