A **Cardinal Number** is a number that says how many of something there are, such as one, two, three, four, five etc...

It does not have fractions or decimals, it is only used for counting.

An **Ordinal Number** is a number that tells the position of something in a list, such as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th etc.

And Yasmin is 2nd and Rob is 3rd.

An **nominal Numbers** is a number used only as a **name**, or to identify something (not as an actual value or position)

- The number this jersey is "7"
- A zip code: "91210"
- A model number: "380"
