"It costs fifty-eight dollars."

Translation:Це коштує п'ятдесят вісім доларів.

November 9, 2016



It has to do with the number of dollars.. oдин долар, два долари, вісім доларів.


Can we get tips on the translation of dollar and why it's sometimes долар, долари, доларів?


As Sienna already answered, the form of dollar depends of the number that precedes it: after number 1 we write долар (nominative singular, the basic form), after numbers 2 - 4 the form is долари (nominative plural), from 5 upwards доларiв (genitive plural). The last number of the figure determines; therefore: двадцять один долар.
