Before you proceed to learning how to count from 11 to the hundreds in Indonesian, make sure you are familiar with how to count from 0 to 10! Here's my previous lesson:

11 → Sebelas

12 to 19 → ... + belas

To count twelve to nineteen, simply add belas to the end of the numbers you are trying to express.

e.g. Dua belas / Twelve
e.g. Tiga belas / Thirteen
e.g. Empat belas / Fourteen

20 to 99 → ... + puluh + (...)

Puluh represents tens in Indonesian. Add this behind the number 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and you get twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, and ninety.

  • Dua puluh / Twenty
  • Tiga puluh / Thirty
  • Empat puluh / Forty
  • Lima puluh / Fifty
  • Enam puluh / Sixty
  • Tujuh puluh / Seventy
  • Delapan puluh / Eighty
  • Sembilan puluh / Ninety

Now, if you add another number behind puluh, you'll get something like this:

e.g. Lima puluh enam / 50 + 6 = 56 / Fifty six
e.g. Tujuh puluh delapan / 70  + 8 = 78 / Seventy eight
e.g. Sembilan puluh satu / 90 + 1 = 91 / Ninety one

100 → Seratus

100 to 999 → ... + ratus + (...)

Ratus represents hundreds in Indonesian. Let's get straight to the examples to find out how to use it.

  • Dua ratus / Two hundred
  • Tiga ratus / Three hundred
  • Empat ratus / Four hundred
  • Lima ratus / Five hundred
  • Enam ratus / Six hundred
  • Tujuh ratus / Seven hundred
  • Delapan ratus / Eight hundred
  • Sembilan ratus / Nine hundred

To express 234, for instance, combine the knowledge of what you have learned so far!

  • e.g. 123 = 100 + 20 + 3, so 123 is: Seratus dua puluh tiga
  • e.g. 456 = 400 + 50 + 6, so 456 is: Empat ratus lima puluh enam
  • e.g. 780 = 700 + 80, so 780 is: Tujuh ratus delapan puluh

Easy, right?
