Spanish numbers - From 30 to 59
This article covers the list of Spanish numbers, from 30 to 59, their use and grammar explanations, a video to listen how they are pronounced, and, finally, some exercises, to practice what you have learn.

There is a previous article about Spanish numbers, covering numbers from 1 to 29. You can find it here: Spanish numbers. From 1 to 29

First of all, here is the table with the list of numbers in Spanish:

30 treinta40 cuarenta50 cincuenta
31 treinta y uno41 cuarenta y uno51 cincuenta y uno
32 treinta y dos42 cuarenta y dos52 cincuenta y dos
33 treinta y tres43 cuarenta y tres53 cincuenta y tres
34 treinta y cuatro44 cuarenta y cuatro54 cincuenta y cuatro
35 treinta y cinco45 cuarenta y cinco55 cincuenta y cinco
36 treinta y seis46 cuarenta y seis56 cincuenta y seis
37 treinta y siete47 cuarenta y siete57 cincuenta y siete
38 treinta y ocho 48 cuarenta y ocho58 cincuenta y ocho
39 treinta y nueve49 cuarenta y nueve59 cincuenta y nueve

Numbers 31, 41 and 51 have three different forms:

31: treinta y uno (masculine), treinta y una (feminine) and treinta y un (apocopated form)
41: cuarenta y uno (masculine), cuarenta y una (feminine) and cuarenta y un (apocopated form)
51: cincuenta y uno (masculine), cincuenta y una (feminine) and cincuenta y un (apocopated form)

Both, masculine and feminine forms for 31, 41 and 51 (above) are never followed by a noun (substantive). But their apocopated form is followed by a noun. Take a look at these examples:

Tengo el número treinta y uno. (as "uno" refers to "número", and "número" is masculine.)

Estoy en la fila treinta y una. (as "una" refers to "fila", a feminine noun.)

Tengo cuarenta y un años. (as the noun "años" is placed after "cuarenta y un".). Note I can express this same idea, without the word "años" and, therefore, I'll say "cuarenta y uno" instead of "cuarenta y un": Tengo cuarenta y uno.

I have created a video, so that you can listen to the pronunciation of these numbers and associate the Spanish pronunciations with their spelling. Watch the video..
