In Spanish, just like in English, you can use numbers as **numeric** (also sometimes called **numerical**) **pronouns**.

Read and listen to these examples:

¿Cuántos libros de alemán tienes? -Tengo **uno**.

How many German books do you have? I have one.

¿Cuántos cuadros había en la exposición? -Había **cincuenta y cuatro**.

How many paintings were there in the exhibition? -There were fifty-four.

¿Cuántos euros te quedan en la cartera? -Me quedan **ochenta**.

How many euros do you have left in your purse? -I have eighty left.

In the examples above, the numeric pronoun is invariable and it never changes form.

Now, look at these examples:

¿Cuántas personas acudieron a la manifestación? -**Trescientas**.

How many people attended the demonstration? -Three hundred.

¿Cuántas esculturas viste en el museo? -**Quinientas**.

How many sculptures did you see in the museum? -Five hundred.

¿Cuántos niños hay en ese colegio? -**Setecientos**.

How many children are there in that school? -Seven hundred.

Note that in the examples above, **whole hundreds from 200 onwards** (200, 300, 400, 500, 600, etc.) **agree** with the noun they refer to.

Be careful because when we use "non-whole" hundreds like 203, 345, etc., the tens and units do not change, just the hundreds.

For example:

¿Cuántos hombres vinieron a la conferencia? -**Seiscientos cuarenta y cinco**.

How many **men** came to the conference? -**Six hundred and forty-five.**

¿Cuántas **mujeres** vinieron a la conferencia? - **Seiscientas cuarenta y cinco.**

How many **women** came to the conference? -** Six hundred and forty-five.**

Notice how in the examples above the number "seiscient**os**" changes to "seiscient**as**" when it refers to "women", however "cuarenta" and "cinco" remain the same for both.
