 Notes on Spanish numbers

Uno changes to un when used in front of a masculine noun: un hombre, veintiún hombres.

Una is used to refer to a feminine noun: una mujer, treinta y una mujeres.

Uno is used only when counting (uno, dos, tres) or when it refers to a masculine noun but does not precede that noun: ¿Cuántos libros tienes? – Uno.

Spanish numbers 21-29 are usually a single word composed as follows:

  • take veinte
  • drop the final e
  • add i (meaning "and")
  • add the digit

21-29 can also be written as three words, just as the 30's through 90's are:

  • take veinte, treinta, cuarenta, etc.
  • add y (and)
  • add the digit
