hello everybudy, i'd like to ask about "hundred + one" "101" how can I say that: Hundred one or hundred and one, and the rest of the numbers; thanks for your help.

    one hundred and one... one hundred and two... one hundred and three... hasta llegar al nueve... y así sucesivamente, 201 al 209 = two hundred and one..., 301 al 309, three hundred and one...

    One hundred and one or (less acceptably, I think?) a hundred and one.
    This form applies for 101-109. After that, the and becomes optional (again, I think; strange how I begin to question the most basic parts of my language).
    One hundred ten/twenty-five/seventy-nine.

    For example, the movie "101 Dalmations" is not "one o one Dalmations" it's "one hundrend and one Dalmations"

    When you're referring to digits, as in a phone number or code you can use "one o one", however, when stating actual figures, you would use "one hundred and one", for the sake of clarity.

    Se dice one ninety nine cuando se trata de un precio, como $1.99, y para 199 como one-nine-nine para los dígitos de un código, pero usualmente no para cantidades o sumas, donde entonces se usaría one hundred and ninety nine

    One hundred and one is said in both the USA and the UK, but from 110 onwards which is in England one hundred and ten, Americans omit the and, saying one hundred ten etc. To what extent the British usage is tolerated in the States I am unsure.
    (Not exactly to the point, but closely related and worth pointing out).
