These are slight variations to the ones you listed, mostly due to the difference of Greek and Latin prefixes:

Number Greek- Latin
------ ----- -----
1 mono- uni-
2 duo-/di- duo-/bi-
3 tri- tri-
4 tetra- quad-
5 penta- quint-
6 hex- sex-
7 hept- sept-
8 oct- oct-
9 ennea- non-
10 dec- dec-
20 icosa- vigint-
30 triaconta- trigint-
40 tetraconta- quadragint-
50 pentaconta- quinquagint-
60 hexaconta- sexagint-
70 heptaconta- septuagint-
80 octaconta- octogint-
90 enneaconta- nonagint-
100 hect - cent-
