This Spanish Easy Review math quiz tests you on counting from 40 through 59. We are now finally starting to get up there in numbers! Really, after learning the numbers zero through thirty-nine it gets pretty easy to count in Spanish. As you have previously learned, the numbers 16 through 19 and 21 through 29 are stated as 'ten and six' through 'ten and nine' and 'twenty and one' through 'twenty and nine'. In addition, each number can be said in two different ways by connecting the three words into one word. However, when we got to the thirties, there was only one way to say the numbers, i.e. 'thirty and one' through 'thirty and nine'. The same holds true for the numbers in the forties and fifties, i.e. 'forty and one' through 'forty and nine' and 'fifty and one' through 'fifty and nine'.

This quiz will address twenty numbers (40-59) but, in reality, you only have to learn two new numbers, 'forty' (cuarenta) and 'fifty' (cincuenta). That should make things pretty easy don’t you think! Still, it is always good to practice saying each one. So let’s now look at the new numbers and their phonetic pronunciations.
