Numbers and Numerals

A number is expressed by numerals (1, 2, 3, 4), by Roman numerals (I, II or i, ii), or by words. Cardinal numbers use words such as “one, two, three.” Ordinal numbers use words such as “first, second, third.”

In computer documentation, you most often use numerals when numbers are discussed in text.
