Are you an English-speaking student? Don't you know how to write dollars and cents? The numbers I have highlighted don't make sense!! If you want to write "One hundred and twenty-five dollars and sixty-seven cents", this is how it is written: $125.67.  You should change your numbers so that people understand what you want calculated.
