    the figure
    17000000
    in Europe is 17,000,000
    but
    in China is 1700,0000
    so
    一千七百万

    一千七百万.
    It can't be pronounced as "十七百万", just as 1700 can't be pronounced as "十七百".
    1700 can be pronounced as "一千七百", or "一千七" unless it is followed by a measure word.
    e.g.
    "多少钱?"
    "一千七(百)" or "一千七百元". but you can't say "一千七元" (It doesn't make sense)



    For the general rule for that, see http://www.cnshuxue.com/math/27/Article1341_1.htm
