Numbers in Spanish (Los Números en Español)

Numbers in Spanish are called, like in English, according to their function: numbers for counting have one sort of name, numbers for order have another name.

Cardinal Numbers in Spanish

These are called "cardinal", or "números cardinales". These are the numbers we use to count or identify stuff: one, two, ten, fifty, etc...

You get my drift, don't you?

Here is a list of cardinal numbers in Spanish, with pronunciation in audio.

Other Rules and Facts

You may write "diez y seis" and similar numbers as one word; e.g. dieciseis, diecisiete, veintiuno. However, 31 is always written "treinta y uno".

Of the cardinal numbers only "uno" ("un", when preceding a masculine noun) and compunds of "ciento" are declined. For example, you say...

veintiun libros = 21 books
doscientas casas = 200 houses

More Than Before numerals more than is expressed by más de in an affirmative sentence. For instance,

La escuela tiene más de quinientos alumnos.
The school has more than 500 pupils.

In a negative sentence either más de, or más que may be used, with a difference in meaning. For example,

La casa no tiene más de seis cuartos.
The house does not have more than six rooms (the exact number may be in doubt)

La casa no tiene más que seis cuartos.
The house has only six rooms.
