  • Hello Azak,

    You are right, the correct grammatical form is A (or One) hundred, when spoken or written in words. However, when digits are used, omitting the article is acceptable. As this is a title, we have opted to use digits as opposed to words as it is shorter.

    Best wishes,

    The onestopenglish team

  • I don't wish to nitpick, but when we say 100 years ago, shouldn't we say A hundred years ago, or A 100 years ago? Just checking.
