I can’t figure out when to make cent plural when writing dates. I see it is plural in 1900 but not in most other dates.
The rule with 'cent' and it is the same for 'vingt' is that you only multiply it when there is no number after it.
So for instance -
As far as dates are concerned this is why :
Mille neuf cents = 1900
Mille neuf cent trente = 1930
Hope this helps!
