What is the correct grammar when saying cent or cents? Do you use plural when you are referring to more than 1. For example do you say I have Five Hundred Dollars and 36 cents in the bank or Five Hundred Dollars and 36 "cent".

Definitely cents, with the emphasize on the s.

If you want to use it as an adjective, just always make it singular to render it as a modifier.

And if you want it is a noun, you don't have to change the form of the word/s what you have intended to state.
