    Unhappy Hundred

    Hi,
    I need quick help with this. If i have a certain number like 306, the noun after it is plural, for xample 306 calls.

    What about nouns after 100 and 101, are they plural or singular?
    can I sai 100 calls and can I say 101 calls?

    I remeber there was a rule regarding 100 and 101, please help me with this.

    Thank you

    Re: Hundred

    All cardinal numbers greater than 1 (one) are plural.
    So yes, it is correct to say 100 calls, or 101 calls.

    The rule you might be thinking of is that we place 'and' after 'hundred'.
