Ordinals have four forms: primeiro (m/sg), primeira (f/sg), primeiros (m/pl), primeiras (f/pl). These endings are applied to all the numbers, for example 1,234º (1,234th) =

Note the difference between mil e duzentos (1,200), mil duzentos e trinta e cinco (1,235) - there is no e between the thousand and the hundred if there are other numbers after the hundred.

Um bilhão = one thousand million in Brazilian portuguese but not in Portugal, where it means one million millon. The same applies to trilhão, which = one thousand billion in Brazil, but one million billion in Portugal

Portuguese uses a dot to separate thousands, eg. 2.367.900 = 2,367,900; a comma to mark the decimal place, eg 1,5 = 1.5; and ordinal numbers are marked like this: 1º, 2º, 3º, 4º (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th)

In Brazil when giving telephone and house numbers, people use meia for six. It means half, and is a short form of meia dúzia (half a dozen)
