Numbers

In my last lesson you asked for 'chiffres' 10-20.Earliear I was told 'nombres' is used above 9. What's the truth, please?

  • Bonsoir, good evening,

    I think you are right. (I learnt that too !)

    But we often heard : "dans cette région, les chiffres du chômage peuvent atteindre 30%"
    On pourrait dire "écrire les nombres compris entre 0 et 20"... un chiffre est aussi un nombre particulier (number with one digit!)
