Question: When I have aphasia, I have to figure out how to write a checkbook. I needed this before, but now I have a problem with how to do that. Can you help?

Answer: There are several steps to take. The amount is below:

  1. The date: June 23, 2021
  2. Pay to the order: John Jones
  3. The amount $: 1,250.25
  4. The full amount: One Thousand Two Hundred Fifty and 25/100 Dollars
