We have already seen numbers in Gujarati in these previous two lessons:
Numbers in Gujarati – Part 1
Numbers in Gujarati – Part 2
Here we will see forms of verb like “first”,”second” etc. “single”,”double/both” etc.

Counting sequence

In Gujarati, we have special words for the sequence from 1 to 6. From 7 onwards form of મો (mo) is appended to number.

Firstપહેલો (pahelo )
Secondબીજો (bIjo )
Thirdત્રીજો (trIjo )
Fourthચોથો (chotho )
Fifthપાંચમો (pAMchamo )
Sixthછઠ્ઠો (ChaThTho )
Seventhસાતમો (sAtamo )
Eighthઆઠમો (AThamo )
Ninthનવમો (navamo )

As these are kind of adjective ending with ઓ(o) they will have forms as per gender and multiplicity as seen in the lesson
Adjectives in Gujarati

like પહેલો-પહેલી-પહેલું-પહેલા-પહેલી-પહેલાં (pahelo-pahelI-paheluM-pahelA-pahelI-pahelAM) etc.
First boy -પહેલો છોકરો (pahelo Chokaro )
The first girl -> પહેલી છોકરી (pahelI ChokarI )
First-year -> પહેલું વર્ષ (paheluM varSh )

Also, do not get confused between wordપહેલો(pahelo) & પેલો(pelo).
પેલો(pelo) means “that(masculine)” So it is a pronoun. For other genders, such pronouns are પેલી (pelI), પેલું (peluM).

Collective words

Single/AloneMasculine ->એકલો ( ekalo)
Feminine ->એકલી (ekalI )
Neuter -> એકલું (ekaluM)
Bothબંને (baMne)
Three personsત્રણે(traNe)
Four personsMasculine -> ચાર જણ (chAr jaN)
Feminine -> ચાર જણીઓ (chAr jaNIo)
Five personsMasculine -> પાંચ જણ (pAMch jaN)
Feminine -> પાંચ જણીઓ (pAMchjaNIo)

For number four onward it follows the same pattern; i.e.
for masculine “number and then “જણ”.
For feminine number and then “જણીઓ”

For neuter, we use just number.

Fractional numbers

Quarterપા (pA )
Halfઅડધો (aDadho )
Three fourthપોણો (poNo )
Fullપૂર્ણ (pUrN )
One & quarterસવા (savA )
One & halfદોઢ (doDh )
Quarter to oneપોણા બે (poNA be )
Two & quarterસવા બે (savA be )
Two & halfઅઢી (aDhI )
Quarter to threeપોણા ત્રણ (poNA traN )
Three & quarterસવા ત્રણ (savA traN )
Three & halfસાડા ત્રણ (sADA traN )

As અડધો  (aDadho ) & પોણો  (poNo ) are adjective ending with ઓ(o) they will have forms as per gender and multiplicity.

For two onward ‘quarter’ figure is said by prefixing સવા (savA)

Two & quarterસવા બે (savA be )
Three & quarterસવા ત્રણ (savA traN )
Four & quarterસવા ચાર (savA chAr)

Similarly, three onward ‘half’ figure is said by prefixing સાડા (saDA)

Three & halfસાડા ત્રણ (sADA traN )
Four & halfસાડા ચાર (sADA chAr)
Five & halfસાડા પાંચ (sADA pAMch)

Similarly two onward “quarter to” type figure is said by prefixing પોણા (poNA).

Quarter to twoપોણા બે (poNA be )
Quarter to threeપોણા ત્રણ (poNA traN )
Quarter to fourપોણા ચાર (poNA chAr)

The fractional number with decimal point

The number “10.3” is generally said in English as “Ten points three”. Similarly, we say in Gujarati. For point, the word is દશાંશ (dashAMsh)
But in spoken Gujarati people generally, use English word “point” itself.

10.5 -> દસ દશાંશ પાંચ (das dashAMsh pAMch)
દસ point પાંચ (das “point” pAMch)

3.70 -> ત્રણ દશાંશ સિત્તેર (traN dashAMsh sitter )
ત્રણ point સિત્તેર (traN “point” sitter )

Percentage in Gujarati

“percent” in English is ટકા( TakA) in Gujarati.
11 % -> eleven percent ->અગિયાર ટકા (agiyAr TakA )
20% -> twenty percent -> વીસ ટકા (vIs TakA )
20.5% -> twenty point five percent ->વીસ point પાંચ ટકા (vIs point pAMch TakA )

ટકા( TakA) is plural of word ટકો ( Tako). So we use it only for 1%
1% -> એક ટકો (ek Tako)

For numbers from 1 to 100 in Gujarati, refer
Numbers in Gujarati – Part 1

For numbers after 100 and higher numbers like thousand, million etc
Numbers in Gujarati – Part 2
