# Math - Counting in the Hundreds (Quiz 2)

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:

## THE UPPER HUNDREDS

NUMBER ENGLISH SPANISH
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)
600 six hundred seiscientos
700 seven hundred setecientos (notice that the letter 'i' in siete (7) has been dropped)
800 eight hundred ochocientos
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!
