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

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!
