Numbers must agree in gender and number with the nouns they describe. They come before the noun (exception: number one follows the noun), and can be followed by a singular or plural noun, but the meaning will always be plural in translation.
Aleph = elephant
Imagine a hundred elephants: “we may, uh, (mey-AH) run out of hay for 100 alephants!
Hopefully, this silly sentence will help you remember that מאה means hundred. The spelling includes the aleph, that’s why we imagine 100 elephants! And we are concerned about running out of “hay”…the mnemonic for letter hey, of course.
