Spanish Numbers

Below you will find a table of Spanish numbers and their pronunciations. In Spanish, numbers are called numeros.

In Spanish, a period (.) is used instead of a comma (,) to express units of 1000. For example, in Spanish they write 120.900 instead of 120,900 to express one-hundred-twenty-thousand-nine-hundred.

The reverse is true for decimals. For example, in Spanish they write 1,45 instead of 1.45 to express one-point-four-five.

Uno is shortened to un before a masculine noun, and changes to una before a feminine noun. For example, un chico or una chica.

Sometimes the numbers 16 through 19 are written as several words. For example, dieciseis may be written as diez y seis.

Ciento is shortened to cien when it comes before a noun or mil or millón. For example, cien personas (one hundred people) or cien mil personas (one hundred thousand people).

Numbers that contain ciento agree with the noun in number and gender. For example, doscientas peronsas (two hundred people).

Un is not used before ciento or mil. However, it is used before millón. For example, un millón de dólares.
