The numbers up to 29 are irregular special cases and need to be learnt. The numbers above 30 are of the form tens y units (y means and), e.g. 42 is cuarenta y dos.

Uno drops the -o before masculine nouns, e.g. un libro, and when in compound numerals, e.g. treinta y un niños . Note that veintiuno is not a compound numeral.

100 is a special case.  100 itself is cien, but to form any number 101-199 it becomes ciento. Take the stem ciento and follow it with the relevant number from 1 and 99. So for example 152 is written ciento cinquenta y dos. Note that cineto is not merged with the number following it.

Hundreds agree with the noun that follows them, e.g. doscientas pesetas (two hundred pesetas), excepting numbers 100-200.

One thousand is mil. Two thousand, etc are formed by preceding this with the number of thousands, e.g. tres mil (3,000).

The millions are somewhat different. Millón becomes plural in two million, etc and therefore loses its accent: e.g. cuatro milliones (4,000,000).

Ordinals are irregular in Spanish and need to be learnt. Primero and tercero (1st and 3rd) shorten before masculine nouns to become primer and tercer respectively.

Ordinals agree with their subject. Ordinals above 10 are very rarely used, generally being replaced by cardinals which follow the noun.
