If writing dates has you stymied at times, it is probably for one of two reasons.Some say to put a comma after the year in a sentence like (5, 6), and some say to leave the comma out after the year (7, 8). Therefore, some people may object, but you wouldn't be completely out of line to write a sentence like written as a number instead of written out with words.Still, if you want to be safe, it's better to rewrite the sentence so the year isn't at the beginning.
