Do Chinese people prefer alphabet numbers or Chinese numbers?

For example, do you use '5' or '五' more often?

as for me,5 is more often used.^^Actually except set phrases like "一石二鸟"(kill two birds with one stone),you can just use "5" to express the numer,figrue,time,age,etc.

in most cases, alphabet numbers.

only when the number is inside a word, like "一心一意", you must use Chinese numbers.

“5” 在中国有两种写法 1.“五” 是用于书写方面的 2.“伍”是用于金钱数目方面的。
