Learn Sanskrit through Self Study

Lesson4: Friends in conversation

Section-15: Numbers (Expressing numbers)

  In lesson2 we saw the names of the digits (0-9). Numbers are built up with digits and expressing a number is done right to left, different from the familiar left to right expression. In some world languages, the right to left convention is still retained. In English too we sometimes say "five and thirty". Sanskrit has also interesting ways of expressing numbers, as you will read below.
