Question on Quiz
This is a number written in French: "78,005". How would it be expressed in English?
In this question, the number is already written as english...and not french. Just thought you should know, because I got the question wrong.
This question relates to:French lesson "Writing decimal numbers in French"
In general you can't tell whether a number is in French or English just by looking at it, so you have to rely on what it says in the question.
If it were in English, "78,005" would mean "seventy eight thousand and five".
But because we're told that it's in French, it actually means "seventy eight and five thousandths". In English we write that as "78.005".
