Cardinal numbers give information about how many people or things there are.
Ten numbers go from 1 to 99.
Ten numbers have ten as its base. However, the numbers from 1 to 9 are commonly called unities.
They have specific features:
- plain form: number + 0
- specific names from 0 to 20
- from 20 to 99 the numbers follow a pattern to name them: using a hyphen in between the ten number and the unit.
|Unities from 1 to 9||Tens from 11 to 19||Tens from 10 to 90||Tens + unities|
NOTE: We normally use the singular form of the numbers when we are naming a concrete figure, while we use the plural form when we are not speaking about a concrete number, but in general terms.
- 10 (ten)
- 25 (twenty-five)
Tens numbers are used to measure, count, label things, codes from 1 to 99.
In formal writing it is better to write the number in letters when it is a short figure.
