Counting in Spanish - Spanish Numbers 31 to 99

Numbers in Spanish from 31 to 99 are formed according to the following pattern: tens + y + units. e.g: treinta y cinco (thirty-five), cincuenta y ocho (fifty-eight), ochenta y tres (eighty-three). The letter y is used to separate tens from units only for numbers between 31 to 99 (131 to 199, 231 to 299, 331 to 399...) it is not used to separate tens from hundreds or hundreds from thousands. The most important thing to remember from this second table are the names of the tens. Pay extra attention to numbers sesenta (sixty) and setenta (seventy) because they can be easily confused. All the exact tens from 30 to 90 end in '-nta'. Since you already know the numbers from 1 to 30, this second table will start from 31.

When and How to use the Spanish numbers:

In Spanish there is a short form of the number one hundred (ciento), this shortened form is used only when the number is before a noun and it's exactly one hundred (ciento), e.g: cien dólares. Some numbers in Spanish when are prior to a noun, change their form according to the noun gender. Spanish numbers that are changing according to the noun gender, are:
- one (uno): masculine - un / feminine - una
- numbers ending in one (uno): when you have to change the form of a number ending in one (uno) you will need to change only the form of the final one (uno) according to the noun gender, the rest of the number remains the same.
- all the exact hundreds between 200 and 900, change their final '-ientos' to '-ientas' when the noun gender is feminine, e.g: masculine - cuatrocientos / feminine - cuatrocientas
- all the numbers which have in their spelling form one of the exact hundreds between 200 and 900: when you have to change the form of a number which has in his spelling form one of the exact hundreds between 200 and 900, you will need to change, only the form of the exact hundreds between 200 and 900 according to the noun gender, the rest of the number remains the same, e.g: masculine - mil cuatrocientos ochenta y dos / feminine - mil cuatrocientas ochenta y dos

Punctuation of Spanish numbers:

In Spanish, periods and commas within numbers are reversed from what they are in English, e.g: in English 11,450.80 - in Spanish 11.450,80 ; in English 1,758.34 - in Spanish 1.758,34 There are also Spanish speaking countries where punctuation is the same as in English, e.g: Central America, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

Important! Because some Spanish sounds are not found in English we have tried to come up with something that sounds similar, for this reason the pronunciation tips from above are simply informational and does not offer any guarantee.
