Rules to Play Down Hill Skiing
In June 2009, the International Ski Federation (FIS) released the quotas which determine the maximum number of Alpine skiers a nation may bring to the 2010 Olympics. The FIS quota is based on performance and depth of field during the 2008 09 season.Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy earned the most spots (22), followed by the United States with 20.Over 300 Alpine skiers are expected to compete in Vancouver.
Use hundred when there is a specific number, and use hundreds when you don't know or can't count how many. This rule also applies to thousand/thousands and million/millions. This skeleton is thousands of years old. This skeleton is three thousand years old.
When saying numbers, always use the singular form:
250 = Two hundred and fifty
Two hundreds and fifty
7,812 = Seven thousand, eight hundred and twelve
Seven thousands, eight hundreds and twelve
$10,000,000 = Ten million dollars
Ten millions of dollars
