    Hi Jackie, welcome to the forum.

    I can give you a sort of definitive answer. It's either
    one thousand five hundred and sixty-two
    or
    one thousand five hundred and sixty two
    depending on whether or not you prefer to hyphenate numbers like 62, 29, etc.

    What I can tell you more definitively is that:
    you is spelt 'you' (not 'u')
    please is spelt 'please' (not 'pls'), and
    thanks is spelt 'thanks' (not 'thx').
    In other words, we speak English here, not chatspeak.
    :)

    Yeah like they say it depends on where you are, but generally it's considered that the hyphen is optional.

    I was taught that the hyphen is required in American English.
