How about "Εκατό άτομα"?

It is correct!!! Added :)

Is it not more common? Perhaps it should be the primary phrase that is presented?

το έμαθα στο πανεπιστήμιο ως 'εκατόν'. Αυτό είναι σωστό επίσης;

It is the old form, so it is(?) correct but in phrases like the above it will sound wrong in Modern Greek. The -ν is maintained in composite numbers though, like εκατόν ένα, εκατόν τριάντα etc.

Wow. I was only at uni seven years ago. When did it change?

That's interesting. one hundred sheep (Matt 18:12) = ἑκατὸν πρόβατα. Now it would be εκατό πρόβατα

εκατο . marked incorrect

εκατο . marked incorrect

"." does not mean "people".

You have to write εκατό άνθρωποι or εκατό άτομα, not εκατό .
