I ended the class with this info about when to use dollars and when to use dollar.  We were talking about describing clothes but I thought the principle held water.  " O have a $70 jacket" and " I have $70"  in one case it is a noun and the other an adjective.
the math may not look right but basically I was saying if it is one dollar than no plural but be careful it has to be a noun.
I was just pointing out that we say jeans and t-shirt.  not jean unless it is connected to a noun.  Also I hear t-shirts when Koreans say T-shirt.
I think the Korean words or Konglish expression is interfering.
