OLD AND NEW SYSTEMS OF COUNTING. In schools today, children learn the cardinal numbers from the new system of counting just as you did in Chapter 3 of Sett i gang. However, there is an old system of counting that is still very common among people of all ages, so it is important that you can understand it. This old system of counting has both some different numbers as well as a different way of ordering the numbers. Numbers that have both a digit for tens and for ones are read in reverse order, which can seem confusing when one first hears these numbers. See examples below.
In the exercise below, there are several examples of numbers in the old counting system. Rewrite them using the new counting system. Write the numbers as words rather than digits.
