Cardinal numbers (números cardinales) say how many of something there are.
They are used both as adjectives and pronouns. If they are placed before a noun, they serve as adjectives.
María tiene dos gatos. (María has got two cats.)

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.

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.)

Greetings dear student,My name is Alberto Pérez. I am an English teacher with honors at the Universidad Experimental Libertador in... Barquisimeto, Venezuela. I have ample experience (7 years) teaching hundreds of students the English language with several methods for teaching it. This has been always making learning more suitable and easy for students.I have worked in universities, high schools and academies so I have a basic experience with adults, young people and adolescents. In addition to a master's degree in "Educational Management", whose thesis on the management of technological tools to carry out a more meaningful, effective and efficient student learning in English.In addition to this, I have 3 years of experience working as an online English teacher-tutor. I teach through applications such as Skype and other online teaching platforms where student learning is concretized more effectively and actively in comparison to face-to-face classes.It's important to say that I am also in the capacity and training to teach Spanish which is my native language; I teach it by the same means as English. On the other hand, I teach my English lessons online in a particular way, not only in the teaching methods of English but also taking into account the processes that are given to carry out learning in the human being; thus attacking the most specific needs that each student needs. For this, I use practical and psychological techniques which through have been successful during last years. Read more
