## How do you write numbers in an essay?

Writing NumbersNumbers up to nine should always be written in words, anything higher than nine can be written in numerals.

## How do you write money amounts?

Dollar Sign/Decimal You can write the amount using a dollar sign and decimal point by writing the dollar sign ($) and then the number of whole dollars. Next, place the decimal point. Finally, write the number of cents (¢) to the right of the decimal.

### How do you write 5 cents?

To do this, we need to think about 5 out of 100. We can say that 5 cents is 5 hundredths of a dollar since there are 100 pennies in one dollar. Let’s write 5 cents as a decimal using place value. The five is in the hundredths box because five cents is five one hundredths of a dollar.

#### How do you write 20 cents?

We use a decimal point followed by two places to show cents. Here we show the same amounts of money using a dollar sign instead of a cent sign. We read $3.24 by saying, “3 dollars and 24 cents.” To read $0.20 we say, “20 cents.” We do not read the zero in the dollars place. To read $0.04 we just say “4 cents.”

**Why is it so hard for me to write essays?**

The biggest reason writing an essay is so hard is because we mostly focus on those external rewards like getting a passing grade or our teacher’s approval. The problem is that when you focus on external approval it not only makes writing much less fun, it also makes it significantly harder.

**What causes difficulty in writing?**

It’s not that you don’t know how to read, spell, or identify letters and words. Instead, your brain has problems processing words and writing. When dysgraphia develops in adults, the cause is usually a stroke or other brain injury. In particular, injury to the brain’s left parietal lobe may lead to dysgraphia.
