How to express 311 136 000 in English? Thanks

Dan, let's break this number up into two smaller and more manageable parts. (i) 136000 There are 136 times of a thousand (1000). Therefore, we can write "one hundred and thirty-six thousand" Do note that a hyphen is needed to separate the "ones" from the tens". Examples: 45: forty-five 45000: 45x1000. (Forty-five thousand) If the number is twenty or less, a hyphen is not needed. Examples: 17: seventeen (not seven-teen) (ii) 311000000 There are 311 times of a million (1000000). Therefore, we can write: Three hundred and eleven million. (Remember that eleven is smaller than twenty, so a hyphen is not needed). Joining both (i) and (ii), we write: Three hundred and eleven million, one hundred and thirty-six thousand. Hope this helps.

Three hundred and eleven million, one hundred and thirty-six thousand (that's in UK English, I think people in the US sometimes leave out one or both of the "and"s)
