Why no y in correct answer

20,354 = twenty thousand three hundred and fifty four= veinte mil trescientos cincuenta y cuatro

Notice how in Spanish we need toadd "y" between the tens and the units (cincuenta y cuatro). Three thousand six hundred and six.

(HINT: Write the number in letters in Spanish (not digits))Three thousand six hundred and six.(HINT: Write the number in letters in Spanish (not digits))Three thousand six hundred and six.(HINT: Write the number in letters in Spanish (not digits)) But there’s no y in this correct answer: Tres mil seiscientos seis

Hola Shirley

I am not 100% sure which question you're referring to as there is no mention of a specific one, but looking at all the test-questions we have for this topic I guess you may be referring to the lack of "y" on one of the numbers that don't have "tens", therefore you don't need the "y". For example:

Three thousand six hundred and six:

Tres mil seiscientos seis

 

Twenty five thousand three hundred and five:

Veinticinco mil trescientos cinco

 

If we had tens as well, then you'd need the "y", for example:

 

Twenty five thousand three hundred and THRITY five:

Veinticinco mil trescientos TREINTA Y cinco
