How To Write A Check For A Large Amount. For example eighty seven dollars and fifty seven cents or eighty seven dollars and 57 100. Separate the dollar amount and the cent amount with a decimal point 47 50 for example.

As long as the funds are available in your bank account and a personal check is an accepted method of payment you can write a check for any amount. A rule of thumb is to write the numbers just as they sound.
