Russian Numbers and Numerals

Ordinal Numbers
Ordinal numbers designate order in counting. They answer the question "which one?" For example, the phrases "the 5th day" and "the 8th word" use ordinal numbers. Like in English, Russian ordinal numbers are formed from cardinal numbers. However there are more endings you must know when speaking Russian as opposed to only four endings in English (-th, -st, -nd and -rd).
