We don’t say
nuevecientos, but
rather . . .
Notice that we simply say
“thousand,” not “one thousand.”
(mil, not un mil)
The Larger Numbers
cien = 100 even
100 cien
101 ciento uno
110 ciento diez
cien > ciento
with any number
over 100 even
Notice that “y” (and) is
not used between the
hundreds’ and tens’
places.
115 ciento quince, etc.
The Larger Numbers
“Y” is used, however, between the
tens’ and ones’ places when there is a
digit other than 0 in the tens’ place.

The Multiples of One Thousand
The multiples of one thousand are formed simply by the
counting numbers two, three, seven, etc. plus mil. Mil is
invariable when used for counting.
1000

7000
20.000
100.000
500.000
mil (Remember, one thousand is just mil.)
dos mil
siete mil
veinte mil
cien mil
quinientos mil
Notice that a decimal point is used with large numbers
instead of a comma as in English.
The Larger Numbers
With one thousand and its multiples in combination with
hundreds, we must spell and read the number starting with
the number of thousands and then the number of hundreds,
since there is no way in Spanish to say fourteen hundred,
thirty-five hundred, etc.
1492
In English we can say:
In Spanish we must say:
fourteen hundred
ninety-two
mil cuatrocientos
noventa y dos
(one thousand four
hundred ninety-two)

the indefinite article un.

Multiples of one million are expressed with the counting
number and the plural form millones. Notice that the plural
form loses the written accent.
