I think you're original question is valid but maybe should have been fifty million and five (50,000,005). Wouldn't that also be milioni hamsini na tano?

That's a good question. Also 50005=55000=elfu hamsini na tano?

50005=hamsini elfu na tano

How would I say "five million and five" (5 000 005)?

Milioni tano na tano? Possibly? 2005 would be elfu mbili na tano, I'm guessing it works in a similar way with millions.

Wouldn't that be 5 million and 5?
