: Is there a correct way to read aloud decimal numbers? I was taught to say thirty-four point five seven. It grates on me to hear newsreaders saying thirty-four point fifty-seven. This morning the barometric pressure was thirty point thirty.
: Am I out of date, and is it now OK to read the numbers after the decimal point as a whole number?
I'm still in school, and i was taught to use tenths, hundredths,etc. But we use them, mainly in school. People rarely use that, but uses " point"
