Approximative number question

So you can only use these expressions (attaching 'aine') with the quantities shown above? How would I say '35 or so apples' for example?

Hi Olivia,

You can only use 'aine' with numbers ending in 0 up to 60 and 100 with the exception of 'quinze' and 'douze'.

So about 35 would be -

'une trentaine de' 

Hope this helps!
