ochenta 5 = cinco 13 = trece 21 = veintiuno 29 = veintinueve 37 = treinta y siete 90 = noventa 6 = seis 14 = catorce 22 = veintidós 30 = treinta 38 = treinta y ocho 100 = cien
7 = siete 15 = quince 23 = veintitrés 31 = treinta y uno 30 = treinta y nueve o Note the following rules for the use of cardinal numbers in Spanish. Numbers after 15, quince , are formed by combining numbers: 10 + 6 = 16, diez y seis son dieciséis. The numbers from 16-19 and 21-29 are expressed as one word: 22, veinte y dos  veintidós . Numbers after 30, treinta , end in -a and do not combine with the next number. They are expressed as individual words: 34, treinta y cuatro , for example. This is true for numbers 31-99, treinta y uno to noventa y nueve . In English we say one hundred and ten. Spanish does not use y to connect hundreds and the following number: 110, ciento diez ; 220, doscientos viente ; 315, trecientos quince . When a masculine noun follows the number 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, 71, 81, or 91, the -o is dropped from uno : 21 years, veintiún años ; 31 books, treinta y un libros ; 51 cats, cincuenta y un gatos ; 61 men, sesenta y un hombres ; 91 friends, noventa y un amigos . When a feminine noun follows a number ending in uno (English one ), the feminine form is una : 41 women, cuarenta y una mujeres ; 71 girls, setenta y una muchachas ; 81 friends, ochenta y una amigas . The number 100 in Spanish uses the following pattern: 100, cien ; 101, ciento uno ; 150, ciento cincuenta ; 199, ciento noventa y nueve . Cien becomes ciento if it is followed by any number less than itself. Before all nouns, masculine or feminine, it remains cien . The numbers 200-900 agree with the noun they modify. 200 (doscientos): 200 hotels, doscientos hotels ; 200 doors, doscientas puertas 300 (trescientos): 300 cats, trescientos gatos ; 300 stores, trescientas tiendas 400 (cuatrocientos): 400 trains, cuatrocientos trenes ; 400 lights, cuatrocientas luces 500 (quinientos): 500 animals, quinientos animals ; 500 flowers, quinientas flores 600 (seiscientos): 600 trees, seiscientos árboles ; 600 parties, seiscientas fiestas 700 (setecientos): 700 boats, setecientos barcos ; 700 plants, setecientas plantas 800 (ochocientos): 800 dreams, ochocientos sueños ; 800 tables, ochocientas mesas 900 (novecientos): 900 mirrors, novecientos espejos ; 900 naps, novecientas siestas Spanish numbers beginning with 1000, mil , are not counted in hundreds.
1.000 (mil): 1000 years, mil años ; 2000 years, dos mil años 1.000.000 (un millón (de)): a million dollars, un millón dólares 2.000.000 (dos millones (de)): two million questions, dos millones de preguntas. Mil does not change ( dos mil , tres mil , cinco mil ), nor does it need the article un (English a ) in front of it. Spanish does not count in hundreds after 1,000. The number 1992 is formed by combining 1000 + 900 + 92: mil novecientos noventa y dos . The number 2006 is dos mil sies. The plural miles is used only to refer to a large but inexact amount, the way English uses tons : Hay miles de personas en el restaurant. (There are tons of people in the restaurant.
