Sorry, but again, without rewording, would you support (in nonfiction) the punctuation in the two examples below? I believe the hyphens are necessary to show the relation of $95 (which is $95,000) to $100,000. The hyphen after $100 (which is $100 million) shows the connection to $150 million). (1) They shared a $95-to-$100,000-a-year joint income. (2) Her grandfather once owned and operated a $100-to-$150-million-a-year business in Tampa. And in these two, if we repeated the '000' and 'million,' do these look right, too? (3) They shared a $95,000-to-$100,000-a-year joint income. (4) Her grandfather once owned and operated a $100-million-to-$150-million-a-year business in Tampa. I also think that: (5) a $150-million-a-year industry (with the hyphen after $150) is correct. Do you concur? Thanks.
