If it is like 53 or 87, you will switch Limampu to Limampu't Tatlo or Walumpu to Walumpu't Pito. i think... i am still a beginner XD

@BisayangDako2022 @RielFox @Kersheys
I’m assuming they’re meaning something like “the temperature was in the 30s yesterday,” or “he was in his 40s (age)”…

If you want to go formal, you could say:
20s - dalawampung dekada ng buhay
30s - tatlumpung dekada ng buhay
But in most informal situations, most Filipinos would understand "twenties" or "thirties" or other English constructions of that nature.
eg. Oy, ang bata niya! Akala ko nasa mga twenties siya.
(Hey, they're [he/she] so young! I thought they were in around their twenties.)
