# How do you indicate that a price has no decimals?

In my native language, we use a colon and a hyphen after a price to show that there are no decimals involved, so, we write for instance €10:- to show that the price is ten euros exactly; not, say, ten euros and five cents.

Now I’m wondering if you have something similar in English, and if so, if there’s a difference between BrE and AmE.

Edit: I have now found some weak support for a long dash: \$10— Is there anyone who can corroborate this use?

Also, if you use .00, how do you use this with non-specified sums of money? Like, I would write €xx:- to indicate that a price will always be without decimals. Would you write €xx.00 then?

(Also, if someone can think of further tags for this question, I’d be very grateful if you could just add them 🙂 )

Thank you!

When writing the price using Arabic numerals I can use just `\$10` which (again) implies the absence of any additional cents, or I can explicitly write out the zeros by using `\$10.00`.
Regarding your edit: Using a long dash to indicate “and no cents” (`\$10—` or `\$10.—`) is old-fashioned usage that I have seen more often in the context of handwriting, it being faster to draw a single horizontal line than to mark a zero and another zero. In the era of computers and keyboards I would call that practice obsolete.
