They are used both as adjectives and pronouns. If they are placed before a noun, they are used as adjectives.

Numbers ending in uno (one)
If a number ends in -uno, it agrees with the noun it precedes. The masculine form drops the -o, while the feminine turns into -una.
- Tengo sólo ventiún euros en la cartera. (I only have twenty-one euros in the wallet.)
- Hay treinta y una mochilas en esta tienda. (There are thirty-one backpacks in this shop.)
When not followed by a noun, a number ending in -uno does not change to un.
A: "¿Cuantos estudiantes hay en esta biblioteca?" ("How many students are there in the library?")
B: "Treinta y uno". (Thirty-one.)
Numbers ending in ciento (one hundred)
Numbers that end in ciento must agree with the nouns that follow them.
Hay doscientas mujeres esperando a Enrique Iglesias. (There are two hundred women waiting for Enrique Iglesias.)
Cien is used before mil (thousand) and millones (million).
- Gastó cien mil euros en el casino. (He spent one hundred thousand euros in the casino.)
- Miguel tiene cien millones de euros en el banco. (Miguel has a hundred million euros in the bank.)
