Using unos for a smaller number than 200


This test question confused me.  I thought that a number under 200 used "unos" but the test answer says it should be unas tres horas.

The journey lasts about three hours. : El viaje dura ___ horas.

Hola Lisa,

The article (unos/unas) needs to agree with the noun; in this case "horas". It doesn't depend on how high or low the number is.

El viaje dura unas tres horas.

Había unas ciento cincuenta personas en el concierto.

Ganamos unos doscientos euros en el bingo.

Saludos

Inma
