How many ways to read number $12000? My thinking is that there are three ways: 1. twelve thousand dollars, 2. ten thousand two thousand dollars, 3. ten thousand and two thousand dollars

There are some slang terms for a thousand dollars, so in informal language you could say 12 grand, 12 G's, or 12 K. But it's always "twelve..." plus something.

No, we only say twelve thousand dollars. On the other hand, if the amount is $10,200, then we could say ten thousand two hundred dollars, or ten thousand and too hundred dollars.

Twelve thousand dollars. Yes, and grand , g's , k are slang and not used very much. Grand is probably used more than the others.
