One half million is 500 thousand.

That is the correct spelling of "half million" (500,000). The terminology for the determiner (adjective) would properly be "a half million" or "one-half million" or more colloquially "half a million." e.g. There were a half million refugees from the flood. More than one-half million residents were without power. As many as half a million cars were affected by the recall.

It is supposed to be said "one million five hundred thousand" but it is easier to say "and a half" as in a half million.

No. 5000 + 80000000 = 80005000

5% of 50 million is 2,500,000.

It depends on how pedantic the users are. Most people would use either term to describe 1500000 (1.5 million). But it could be agrued that one and a half million is 1500000 whereas a million and a half is 1000000.5
