What Do We Mean by Money and Price?
Money is a type of currency that is used to buy goods and services. Prices, on the other hand, refer to the amount of money that is required to purchase a good or service.
How to Ask About Money and Prices
When we want to ask about money we should ask questions like: 'how much is this/that' or 'how much are these/those…?'. We answer the questions with 'it’s/they’re….'. For example:
When a price is an exact number, we say the number + dollars/pounds/euros/etc..
$200 → two hundred dollars
$80 → eighty dollars
How to Read Prices
We use different structures to say the price of an item. These are the most common ways:
$4.60 → four-sixty
We can just say the numbers.
$4.60 → four dollars sixty
We can say the number + dollars and the number after the decimal point.
$4.60 → four dollars and sixty cents
We can say the number + dollars + 'and' + decimal number + cents.
The dollar sign ($) goes before the number and there is no space between the dollar sign and the number.
