    The tens are enunciated in the same way, as the thirties are represented overhead. For example: 54 = cincuenta y cuatro. Only the twenties make un exception, as it shows the previous table.

    30 treinta
    40 cuarenta
    50 cincuenta
    60 sesenta
    70 setenta

    100 cien
    101 ciento uno

     

    100 through 1000 in Spanish

    100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000

    The hundreds are pronounces as the tens are added after. For example: 559 = quinientos cincuenta y nueve

    Number in Spanish
    100 cien
    200 doscientos
    300 trescientos
    400 cuatrocientos
    500 quinientos
    600 seiscientos
    700 setecientos
    800 ochocientos
    900 novecientos
    1000 mil

     

    Thousands and millions

    As you already know the word for a thousand in Spanish, now you can verbalize all the thousands. The construction is: the number of the thousands + the number of the hundreds + the number of tens + units. For example: 5596 = cinco mil quinientos noventa y seis.

    The word in Spanish for a million is millón. The explanation of verbalizing millions follows the previously mentioned rule: the millions + the thousands + the hundreds + the tens + units. For instance: 5 810 101 = cinco millones ochocientos diez mil ciento uno

    Ordinal numbers

    The ordinal arithmetical values vary in gender. In the case of primer and tercer, we use these forms instead of primero and tercero, when they are followed by masculine singular nouns. For example: primer lugar, tercer puesto, primer ministro (first place, third place, Prime Minister).

    Number Masculine gender Feminine gender
    1 primer, primero primera
    2 segundo segunda
    3 tercer, tercero tercera
    4 cuarto cuarta
    5 quinto quinta
    6 sexto sexta
    7 séptimo séptima
    8 octavo octava
    9 noveno novena
    10 décimo décima
    11 undécimo undécima
    12 duodécimo duodécima
    13 decimotercero decimotercera
    14 decimocuarto decimocuarta
    15 decimoquinto decimoquinta
    16 decimosexto decimosexta
    17 decimoséptimo decimoséptima
    18 decimoctavo decimoctava
    19 decimonoveno decimonovena
    20 vigésimo vigésima
