"twelve thousand, twelve hundred and twelve dollars"



It cannot be written in another easily understandable mnemonics without changing its meaning like "Nine thousand, Nine hundred and nine dollars" can.

word form: twelve thousand, twelve hundred and twelve dollars

expanded form: 12 * 1000, 12 * 100, 12 * 1 dollars

standard form: 12000, 1200, 12 dollars

distributive form: $12(1101)
