    Regarding the placement of the phrase within sentence both are correct.

    If the ending harakah of the "hundred" is ٌ or ُ then the remaning will be أربعون; otherwise أربعين.

    How do أربعون and أربعين work in general? Is أربعون the nominal form and أربعين the accusative and genitive forms?
