When you write a check, it is your responsibility to make sure the amount is accurate, and cannot be altered. You must enter the amount in two spaces on the check: one space is for the numerical figure, and the other is spelt out in words. In both cases, it's important to follow a specific format.

## Instructions

1. 1

Locate the line on the right side of the check that begins with a dollar ("\$") sign, next to the "Pay to the Order of" line.

2. 2

Write "15,000," and then write the "10" smaller, higher, and to the right, with a slash and a "100" to indicate that it is ten cents out of a hundred: "10/100." This number should begin as close to the dollar sign as possible, so that no one can add another number in front of the amount.

3. 3

Locate the line in the middle of the check, beneath the "Pay to the Order of" line, and with "Dollars" printed on the far right.

4. 4

Write "Fifteen thousand and 10/100" on the line, starting on the far left. If there is a blank space between the "10/100" and the printed word "Dollars," draw a wavy line to fill the space so that no one can tamper with the amount.
