I agree with previous user comments. The only time a point is used in numbers in English is to denote decimals i.e. 14.052 means 14 whole parts and

the rest would in effect denote the fraction, 52/1000. Commas or spaces  would be used to denote the number fourteen thousand and fifty two : 14 052 or 14,052. I've done mathematics at university level but am getting my answers of how to write numbers in English 'wrong'. Your course is fantastic but this section on number writing definitely requires modification.
