Numbers in Spanish are always in the singular form. Plural forms of numbers don't exist. Notice in the following examples that even though the noun is in a plural form, the number doesn't change. The number "one" has both a masculine and a feminine form "uno" and "una", but other numbers do not change for gender. For example:

cinco casas five houses
  diez niños ten children
  dos amigos two friends
  una noche one night
