Please tell me which combination is more correct:


The debt of the company is at the amount of $70,000.

or

The debt of the company is to the amount of $70,000.

    I believe that AE speakers would find "for the amount" more idiomatic.

    (Personally, "The debt of the company is $70,000" and "the debt of the company amounts to $70,000" sound better.)

    Just to add to the confusion, I like: The debt of the company is in the amount of $70,000. And I like bibliolept's: The debt of the company is $70,000. :)
