Rules for spelling numbers

When writing numbers, there are some considerations you must make.

1. 21, 31, 41, 51, 61, and 71 : the conjunction et is used in place of a hyphen.

For example: vingt et un, trente et un, quarante et un

2. 81, 91, 101: a hyphen is used instead of the conjunction et.

For example: quatre-vingt-un, quatre-vingt-onze

3. 101: is written without the conjunction et or a hyphen.

For example: cent un
