100 and above

Beyond 100, the numbers proceed regularly, the units are added to the hundreds as in English, but “and” is not inserted.

e.g.- एक सौ दो (102), एक सौ पंद्रह (115), दो सौ तीन (203), दो सौ तीस (230), etc


For some numbers, certain idioms are used.

e.g.- सवा सौ (125), डेढ़ सौ (150), पौने दो सौ (175), सवा दो सौ(225), ढाई सौ (250), पौने तीन सौ(275), सवा तीन सौ (325), साढ़े तीन सौ(350), पौने पाँच सौ(475), so on.

adding सवा to numbers from 200 onwards will give ¼ or 25 more.

adding साढ़े to numbers from 300 onwards will give ½ or 50 more.

adding पौने to numbers from 200 onwards will give ¾ or 75 more.
