The ordinal numbers Ordinal numbers vs. cardinal numbers Ordinal numbers are those that refer to the order of things, that is, first, second, third, and so on. It may help to remember that ord inal refers to ord er. Cardinal numbers, by contrast, are those that are used for counting: one, two, three, and so on. It may be useful to think c ardinal means c ounting. In Spanish, ordinal numbers beyond tenth are rarely used in everyday speech or writing. The ordinal numbers first through tenth are shown on the following slide.
primero/a segundo/a tercero/a cuarto/a quinto/a first second third fourth fifth sexto/a séptimo/a octavo/a noveno/a décimo/a sixth seventh eighth ninth tenth The ordinal numbers Plural forms exist as well (primeros, primeras, quintos, quintas, etc.), but are less frequently used.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
