Karina
Spanish translation:abajo en números
Explanation:
2.5 billion: es dos veces y media mil millones (USA), entonces 2,5 x 1.000.000.000 = 2.500.000.000
16.5 million: es dieciséis veces y media un millón, es decir 16,5 x 1.000.000 : 16.500.000

Saludos,

Patricia

Explanation:
It all depends on whether they are using British or the American numerals. In America, a billion stands for one thousand million ( 1,000,000,000)whereas in the UK a billion stands for one million million (1,000,000,000,000), so it is up to you to ask your client which one you should use. Hope this helps. Good luck!

En numeros, queda


Explanation:
Si son cantidades en cifras de USA: $2,500,000,000 (dos mil quinientos millones). Como ya explicó alguien, si es en otro sistema (UK), entonces es
$2,500,000,000,000,000 (dos mil quinientos millones de millones).
La segunda cantidad es simplemente $16,500,000 (dieciseis millones quinientos mil)
