How to say 1900

Bonjour,

In how to say dates in the splitting it at the "hundreds" section.  Why do all the examples tell us to use cent, but for 1900 it says cents

Merci

Hi Richard, 

It is because of the quaint little rule that the numbers 'vingt' and 'cent', will take an -s if they are multiplied by the number that precedes it but not when there is a number afterward.

But thanks for pointing it out.

Bonne continuation!
