French numbers???

I am really confused on how french numbers is structured.

For example: 625,978

Would you say—six cent mille VINGT MILLE CINQ MILLE neuf cent soixante-dix-huit

Or—six cent mille VINGT CINQ MILLE neuf cent soixante-dix-huit

JoJo, isn't the second one more "modern" or new-fangled? Is it commonly accepted or used?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jojo553168

That's the new possible/"official" spelling (since 1990). It is used and accepted, and taught I guess.

Neither of them, it will read six cent vingt-cinq mille neuf cent soixante-dix-huit.

six cent mille VINGT MILLE CINQ MILLE neuf cent soixante-dix-huit

six cent mille VINGT CINQ MILLE neuf cent soixante-dix-huit
