International English question

Ok, I'd like to test a theory here. Say you're looking at the names of college courses (e.g. Classics 161 or Economics 257) or at citations out of long books/poems with line numbers (e.g. 4.277-356).

Would you say Classics One-Sixty-One or Classics One Six One?
Would you say Book Four, lines Two-Seventy-Seven to Three-Fifty-Six or Book Four, lines Two Seven Seven to Three Five Six?

Or something else entirely? And where do you live?

Thanks!
