Numbers, Numerals and digits

Numbers help us count and show amounts. When we write numbers we show our ideas in the form of numerals.

When we look at this egg tray we count 6 spaces for 6 eggs. Therefore, 6 and six are both numerals. A number can be a single digit, or makes of a number of digits.

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 are the digits we use.
