Hello,
A few days ago in China I made a copy of one of my documents in a print shop and it costed me the above amount in Chinese currency. But I couldn't say it in English very well. How is it read?

Thank you.

When should we use "point" and when should we use "and" in decimals?

One metre and seven centimetres

One metre point seven centimetres

Hello,

Are these the same? What's the difference between these two? When should we use "point" and when should we use "and" in decimals?

Thank you.

Thank you.

How about "the travels" with the plural s? Is it ever used?

The travels in China were amazing. (that we had last year.)

Is it natural?

Hello,
I have read the previous threads and I know the usage and grammar of the word "travel" very well:
I know that it's better not say: a travel, the travel, my/your travel

But, how about if we ad an ing? I mean is it OK to say "a traveling", "the traveling", "my/your traveling"? Think

Look at my self-made examples:

I had a traveling to China last year.
The traveling to china nowadays costs too much.
The traveling to China that we had last year was great.
My traveling to China will be unforgettable.

Are they fine?

Thank you.
