Exercise Nine

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

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 . For example, 70 translates to e whitu tekau.
