Never make these mistakes in Chinese 88

          Wǒ yǒu bǎi duō kuài qián.
False: 我有百多块钱。
           Wǒ yǒu yì bǎi duō kuài qián.
True: 我有一百多块钱。

The numeral 一 after a verb is understood. One may only read out the measure wor(such as 我买本书). In this sentence, the verb 有 is followed by a phrase with 百 and 多 to indicate an approximate sum of money. Thus 一 must be read out.
