Note: The word hundred, as well as thousand, million, etc.,
      often takes a plural form. We may say hundreds, or many
      hundreds, meaning individual objects or units, but with
      an ordinal numeral adjective in constructions like five
      hundreds, or eight hundreds, it is usually intended to
      consider each hundred as a separate aggregate; as, ten
      hundreds are one thousand.
