1 Así se forma 3: Counting from 100 and indicating the year Copyright © 2008 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. In Hispanic countries, prices of meals and of everyday items are often expressed in thousands of pesos, colones, and so on. Therefore, it is important to become accustomed to understanding and using numbers over 100. cien100ochocientos/as800 ciento uno/a101novecientos/as900 doscientos/as200mil1000 trescientos/as300dos mil2000 cuatrocientos/as400cien mil100.000 quinientos/as500doscientos mil200.000 seiscientos/as600un millón (de + noun)1.000.000 setecientos/as700dos millones (de + noun)2.000.000

Ciento is used with numbers 101 to 199. Hay cien estudiantes en la clase. Cien, ciento uno,… Sólo tengo cien pesos.La torta cuesta ciento un pesos. In Spanish, there is no y between hundreds and a smaller number, although and is often used in English. 205 (two hundred and five) = doscientos cinco NOT doscientos y cinco
