Nothing wrong with that!

I wrote: "He has like twenty cats..." and was marked wrong. Doesn't 'like' mean "about" in this context? Or is it too colloquial?

Sounds like a very good translation, but not the kind they'd include until users suggest it.

probably considered a regional or generational expression.

Why une vingtaine and not simply vingtaine?
