# Resolved questionsTagalog Numbers

Can anyone help me with tagalog numbers? Can anyone explain to me the basics? I'm filipino but I don't know that well because I talk in my dialect not tagalog.

What is 100 in tagalog? or 50? 1,000?

please clarify the "put"/"pung"? what is this? do u put this with the number all the time??

100 in tagalog is isangdaan
50 is limampu
1000 is isang libo

isa = 1 (one)
libo = thousand
daan = hundred
pu = tens place

ex: 5000 = limang libo
500 = limangdaan
50 = limang pu or limampu

(ng is usually added to the tagalog term of the number and when the tagalog term for the number ends with a vowel a e i o u)

na is added when it ends with a consonant
ex: 4 = apat (four)
40 = apat na pu

"put" is used this way:

PU AT = pu't

44 = apatnaPU'T apat

"pung" is used this way;

ex: ~ 40 chickens ~

translation: apatnaPUNG manok
*40 = apatnapu
*chickens = manok

pung or adding of -ng is used to indicate the number of chickens in this case.

I hope it helped.

Good luck!
