This question already has an answer here:

I thought '30-day' and '30 days' are right. But, when I typed 30 days plank challenge, all subject was written as 30 day. Can I use 30 day instead of 30 days? It's tricky! Please help me.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


When you are using it as a noun phrase, you say "30 days". When you are using it as an adjective, you say "30-day".

For example, "The project will last for 30 days", versus "This is a 30-day project".

Similarly for other number-plus-unit expressions.
