"The trains carried hundreds of thousands of passengers". How can it be translated into Russian if my Grammar says: "Cardinal numbers have no plural"? Спасибо :roll:

Your book is wrong a bit.

Hundreds=сотни
thousands=тысячи

So the whole sentence looks like this:

Поезда везли сотни и тысячи пассажиров.
