Thank You Mr. Kirk

I like ice cream too. It is delicious. I eat every flavours.

It is lovely.


hello everybody...sorry to bother you,but if I listened well to joe,he says "eighteen hundred tubs of ice" that another way to say "one thousand and eight hundred",or is it the only way to say 1800?thank you so much!!

Hello Laura,

That's right, 'eighteen hundred' is another way of saying 1,800. This is the standard way of saying the year '1800', but is also very common in other contexts as well. You can also say other similar numbers this way – for example, 'thirty-four hundred' (3400).

But please note that although the year '1946' is said 'nineteen forty-six', the same number is not usually said that way when talking about other numbers, i.e. '1946€' is not usually said as 'nineteen forty-six euro' but rather the typical way. Only numbers ending in '00' are said using 'hundred'.
