In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be reviewing how to count in the upper hundreds. As you can see, this quiz is the sister quiz to the Spanish Medium Review quiz titled Counting in the Hundreds (Quiz 1). In Quiz 1 you learned how to count from 101 to 499. You also learned that once you start to count at 101, the Spanish word for 100, i.e., cien, changes to ciento.
In addition to learning that the Spanish number for 100 changes at 101, you learned that two hundred is doscientos, three hundred is trescientos and four hundred is cuatrocientos. To say 105 you would say 'ciento cinco'. You do not say 'ciento y cinco'. The 'y' is not used after ciento and before the numbers 1 through 99. This same pattern continues on throughout each of the hundreds.
Here in Quiz 2 you will be looking at the numbers 500, 600, 700, 800 and 900 (through 999). Those numbers in Spanish are as follows:
|500||five hundred||quinientos (notice that it is not cincocientos, that is because it adopts the number form from the number 15; also notice that the 'c' in cientos is dropped)|
|700||seven hundred||setecientos (notice that the letter 'i' in siete (7) has been dropped)|
|900||nine hundred||novecientos (notice that nueve (9) becomes nove)|
|999||nine hundred ninety-nine||novecientos noventa y nueve|
As you can see, you have to learn only 5 new vocabulary words. Remember, to each of these hundreds you add the normal numbers 1 through 99. If you need practice, please go back and check out Counting in the Hundreds (Quiz 1) as it will help you to see what is required here. Otherwise, it is now time to start counting in the upper hundreds!
