I've spoken with my family without the 零 in numbers that are slightly higher (like 6070), and found that many people usually don't put the extra 零 in the number when saying it.
I have the same problem here - my logic tells me that you can't possibly get any other number than 6070 when you leave the 零 out. Can someone explain whether it would just sound weird, or whether it would actually cause confusion?
Yes, I've never seen "零“ in real life in China, but I see "〇“ all the time.
Okay my mandarin isn't that good but I've never heard that growing up from my family.
could you also say "六十白七十块" like you say 1500 as fifteen hundred in english?
