In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be reviewing how to count in the lower hundreds. In the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned how to count from 0 to 100. Life would be great if that was all that you needed to learn but numbers go much higher than 100. Now that you are tackling the Spanish Medium Review quiz series it is time to learn more numbers. With Counting in the Hundreds (Quiz 1) you will be introduced to the numbers 101 through 499.
Do not get startled by this large set of numbers. As you may recall from the counting review quizzes, the numbers you have learned so far are 0, 1 through 15, then 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100. That’s a total of only 25 numbers. Remember that the numbers 1 through 9 are repeated over and over again and then you just need to know the numbers for 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100. This trend will continue on throughout the hundreds so it will be a lot easier than you think.
As you may recall, cien is 100. It is used before nouns such as 'cien libros' which means 100 books (or a hundred books) or 'cien perros' which means 100 dogs. However, to say that there are hundreds of books or hundreds of dogs, cien becomes 'cientos' or 'cientos de libros' and 'cientos de perros' for hundreds of books and hundreds of dogs.
Now, I bet you thought that to say 101 you would say 'cien y uno' right? WRONG. When continuing to count after 100, cien becomes ciento and the 'y' is no longer used between the hundreds and the following numbers beginning with the number one. For example, 101 is 'ciento uno', 102 is 'ciento dos', 103 is 'ciento tres' and so on. However, the 'y' remains in the regular counting numbers from 116 through 199. In other words, 116 would be ciento diez y seis.
Now let’s move on to the number 200. Your first thought might be that it would be said as 'dos cien' right? WRONG. In order to say 200 you say 'doscientos'. It is one word. To say 204 you would say 'doscientos cuatro'. Notice that ciento becomes plural by adding the letter 's' at the end of the word starting with the number 200.
Okay, now let’s take a closer look at the hundreds.
|101||one hundred one||ciento uno|
|102||one hundred two||ciento dos|
|103||one hundred three||ciento tres|
|104||one hundred four||ciento cuatro|
|105||one hundred five||ciento cinco|
|106||one hundred six||ciento seis|
|107||one hundred seven||ciento siete|
|108||one hundred eight||ciento ocho|
|109||one hundred nine||ciento nueve|
|110||one hundred ten||ciento diez|
|111||one hundred eleven||ciento once|
|112||one hundred twelve||ciento doce|
|113||one hundred thirteen||ciento trece|
|114||one hundred fourteen||ciento catorce|
|115||one hundred fifteen||ciento quince|
|116||one hundred sixteen||ciento diez y seis (ciento dieciséis)|
|117||one hundred seventeen||ciento diez y siete (ciento diecisiete)|
|118||one hundred eighteen||ciento diez y ocho (ciento dieciocho)|
|119||one hundred nineteen||ciento diez y nueve (ciento diecinueve)|
|120||one hundred twenty||ciento veinte|
|121-199 continue the counting||one hundred twenty-one – one hundred ninety-nine||ciento veinte y uno, ciento veinte y dos, etc. (fill in each number up to 199)|
|499||four hundred ninety-nine||cuatrocientos noventa y nueve|
Note that counting in the 200’s, 300’s and 400’s repeats the same pattern found in the 100’s. In other words, 215 would be doscientos quince, 333 in Spanish would be trescientos treinta y tres and 457 would be cuatrocientos cincuenta y siete. In other words, the only new vocabulary words that you really need to learn are ciento, doscientos, trescientos and cuatrocientos. The numbers one through ninety-nine are simply repeated after each hundreds. So, you see, learning to count in Spanish is actually quite easy one you get one through ninety-nine down.
Okay, now let’s head on down to the quiz questions. Each question contains a number that is shown either in Spanish or in English. You are to locate that number’s translated counterpart. Do you think you are ready? Then begin the quiz!
