    * Unlike English, Spanish uses periods to indicate the value of units.

    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.

    Examples: 

    • 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.)

    enlightenedWhen not followed by a noun, a number ending in -uno does not change to un.

      Example: 

      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.

    Example: 

    Hay doscientas mujeres esperando a Enrique Iglesias. (There are two hundred women waiting for Enrique Iglesias.)

    enlightenedCien is used before mil (thousand) and millones (million).

      Examples:

    • 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.)

    Uses of cardinal numbers

    Use Spanish English
    to count uno, dos, tres... one, two, three...
    to tell the time Son las seis y veinte. It is six twenty.
    to express dates Hoy es el seis de mayo. Today is May 6th.
    to express aritmetic problems Dos más dos son cuatro. Two plus two is four.
