why can't "hundred cars" be accepted? In English, omitting "one" from "one hundred" in speech is extremely common, I would argue.

I wouldn't just say hundred cars though, I'd say a hundred cars. The one is replaced with a.

Why isn't it "Сто машини"?

Numbers ending in 1 - машина

Numbers ending in 2, 3 or 4 - машини

I'm typing this in correctly and it is not accepting? Сто машин answer being: 'one hundred cars'. What's up?
