Unit 8.1

Cardinal numbers

Introduction

Cardinal numbers are used to express the quantity of something.

Form

These are the first ten cardinal numbers:

  • 0 – Zero
  • 1 – One
  • 2 – Two
  • 3 – Three
  • 4 – Four
  • 5 – Five
  • 6 – Six
  • 7 – Seven
  • 8 – Eight
  • 9 – Nine
  • 10 – Ten

Example

  • I have one dog.
  • There are three examples here.
  • We need 10 oranges to make orange juice.

Use

Cardinal numbers are placed before or after a noun because we use them to express the exact number of people, animals or things (how many of those things there are).
