Lesson 62: Counting from 100 to 999

Counting from 100 to 900 is easy, except for some exceptions.

one hundred cien
two hundred doscientos
three hundred trescientos
four hundred cuatrocientos
five hundred quinientos
six hundred seiscientos
seven hundred setecientos
eight hundred ochocientos
nine hundred novecientos

When a number ends in (c)ientos and is followed by a feminine noun, (c)ientos changes into (c)ientas.

seven hundred houses setecientas casas

When a number does not end in (c)ientos, this change does not occur when followed by a feminine noun. Also note that unlike tenfolds, hundredfolds and numbers following them are not separated by an y

five hundred forty-three houses quinientos cuarenta y tres casas
nine hundred nine novecientos nueve
