I'm from fucking England and we say "hundred AND five" etc. If we were sayig decimals, we'd say "hundred POINT five" Are you disabled or something? AND never means decimal point.

Is the 'and' standing for a decimal an American thing, I've never heard anyone say 101 as one hundred-one, it's always "one hundred and one", if it was 100.1, it would be said "one hundred point one".

In America, you would usually say "point" for a decimal, you are correct. But "one hundred AND one" could be interchanged with "one hundred one." Where I live, most people omit the "and" but both ways are correct.
