# Counting (10-100)

By now, you have learnt the numbers **1 **through to 10. Learning the numbers 10 to **100** builds on the numbers you have learnt and as long as you know the numbers 1-10 then you will have little trouble with this work. Look at the following numbers below:

10 **tekau**

16** tekau mā ono**

17 **tekau mā whitu**

20 ** e rua tekau**

21 **e rua tekau mā tahi**

22** e rua tekau mā rua**

30 **e toru tekau**

37** e toru tekau mā whitu**

49 ** e whā tekau mā iwa**

54** e rima tekau mā whā**

62 ** e ono tekau mā rua**

71** e whitu tekau mā tahi**

99 **e iwa tekau mā iwa**

100** kotahi rau**

Note the use of *e *before some of the numbers. **E** precedes:**-** The numbers,** 2** through to **9****-** Numbers between **20** and **99****Note:**

Numbers after ten begin with **tekau mā, rua tekau mā, toru tekau mā**, etc. depending on what the number is.

Numbers such as** 20, 30, 40**, etc. are not followed by **mā***.* For example, **70 **translates to **e whitu tekau***.*

Further explanations and exercises: *Te Kākano* p.16.**Tuhia te kupu mō te nama.**

Don’t forget to use commas, question marks, and fullstops and macrons where appropriate (ā,ē,ī,ō, and ū).
