personally I go with the '60s.

Comment by Quyen on July 22, 2016 at 8:18

What's your preference:  the sixties or the '60s? 

Thx.

Comment by Quyen on July 10, 2016 at 15:55

Very logical, Janiece.  ;)

Thx.

Hi, Quyen,

I don't have a rule but in just looking at their packaging I would be inclined to go with AA batteries.  

Janiece :)

Comment by Quyen on July 10, 2016 at 15:46

double A batteries

double "A" batteries

double-A batteries

or

AA batteries

???

He said "double A batteries."

TIA.

Hi, Quyen.

It might be helpful if you were to post the sentence you're asking about for your "issue/issued" issue -- er, conundrum.

Comment by Quyen on May 17, 2016 at 8:34

What is the right word:  issue patents or issuED patents?

"Issued patents" seem to make more sense, but I'm just not sure if I've heard it correctly every time it has come up.

Thanks.

My preference would be:

fourteen-six

I hate when they say numbers like that.

Please tell me how to write out in transcript 14,6 meaning 14,600. "14.6" "14-6" "14,6"? Fourteen-six?

I'm not sure where to write this question. How would you format this question? I don't know much about Excel columns and rows.


#1) Q. And then we have the -- in Column A H we have expenses paid before and then expenses paid after.

#2)  Q. And then we have the -- in Column AH we have expenses paid before and then expenses paid after.

TIA!
