 Suggested Money Lesson Plan for this WorksheetWhen writing a check, you must write the amount of the check in numbers and words. For example, for a check for \$152.31, you would write 152.31 after the dollar sign, and on the next line would write out "One hundred fifty-two and 31/100" NOTE:  You should check to make sure that the numbers written out in long-hand match the numbers written on the box on the check.  Often, bank employees only look at the long-hand numbers, and ignore the numbers written in the box, so be careful. A common mistake related to this is an amount such as \$100.52 is incorrectly written as One-hundred fifty-two instead of One-hundred and 52/100.  If you do this, the larger amount may be deducted from your account.
