Re: How Many Hundreds

Lots!

ONE HUNDRED = 100
A MONKEY = Slang for $500 = 5 × 100
TON = Slang for 100 mph = 100
500/5 = 100
100x5 = 5 × 100
CENTURY = 100
300 = 3 × 100
MILLENNIUM = 10 × 100

But you can also look at the Roman Numerals in the words. smile

Re: How Many Hundreds

TON = Slang for 100 mph = 100

Isn't a ton 2000 pounds?   20 hundreds?
