Expressing numbers from 100

Expressing numbers from 100

I cannot find the use of cent explained in a lesson. In this one, there is a sentence " deux cent soldats " When is cents used?

Probably we need an update to this lesson to explain this - it's complicated, and I think the one example given is wrong, it should be deux cents soldats.

It seems to be a difficult subject even for native speakers:

That's very interesting. Great article!
