**Korean numbers**

Korean numbers are counted in 2 different systems. The number in Korean is known as μ«μ β Sutja and numeral is μμ¬ in Korean. First of all, letβs learn some Korean number related names or terms that are used for the calculation of numbers.

- Division is λλκΈ° in Korean
- Multiplication is κ³±νκΈ° in Korean
- Subtraction is λΉΌκΈ° in Korean
- Plus is λνκΈ° in Korean

The first thing we need to know about **Korean Number** is that there is two numbering system in Korean. These two systems of numbering are the **Sino-Korean number** (SKN) and **Native Korean number**(NKN).

**Korean** **Counter**

These are** counting units or counting particles of korean language**. Korea has a unique system to count different things. Korean has given unique names to count different items.

**How to write numbers in Korean?**

We can write Korean numbers in two systems they are **sino-Korean number system **and **native Korean number system**. The **pronunciations** and usage of both systems are completely different. The symbol of the Korean number and English number is the same but when you write or speak the Korean language has 2 way of the counting system. Letβs learn them one by one. Sino-Korean numbers system is based on Chinese characters. In this lesson, we will learn **Korean counting to 10**.

**sino-korean numbers**

there are 2 kinds/ sets of number in korean society. One is sino korean numbers and another is pure korean numbers. Those numbers which are borrowed/ lended from chinese numbers are called sino korean numbers. Sino korean number is accepted by korean people like their own number.

- 130 is 100+30 so it is written as λ°±μΌμ
- 200 has two sets of hundred so it is μ΄λ°±
- 300 has 3 sets of hundred so it is μΌλ°±
- 999 is written as κ΅¬λ°±κ΅¬μκ΅¬
- 1000 is μ²
- 1,110 = μ²λ°±μ not μΌμ²λ°±μ ( because for large numbers normally 1 / μΌ is removed.)

**Native Korean numbers**

As we studied earlier there are two sets of Korean numbers: the native Korean system and the Sino Korean system. In this article, we are going to study about the Native numerical system. Mainly, the Native system is used for counting age and numbers of items or things in between 1 to 99.

**When to use Native Korean number?**

**β Counting any physical objects usually followed by a count word (κ°, λΆ,λͺ , μ, etc****β Counting (in general)****Counting age (Years)****β Counting people****β Counting number of months (λ¬)**

In native system Daseot beon (λ€μ― λ²) means βfive timesβ while in sino system o beon(μ€ λ²) means βnumber fiveβ. When, someone has to say their age he or she can use both sino and Korean system of number but the person must use either μΈ or μ΄ depending upon numeral system.

In the **sino Korean number system**, μΈ is used to talk about age. 22 years old is μ΄μμ΄ μΈ but in the **Native Korean number system**, 22 years old is μ€λ¬Όλ μ΄.

In the Sino system, To eliminate confusions between 1 and 2 sometimes native numbers are used. Normally, these substitutions take place over the phone and sometimes over direct conversations as well. When we have to say house number, id card number, passport number or phone number we use native numbers. For instance- 5152 is actually, μ€-μΌ-μ€-μ΄, but we can use μ€ β νλ β μ€ β λ.

The teens (11 through 19) are represented by a combination of tens and the ones places in both native and Sino- Korean number system. For instance, 18 would be sib-phaal λ°ν, but not usually il-sib-fall in the Sino-Korean system, and yeol- yeodalp (μ΄μ¬λ) in native Korean. Twenty through ninety Native system has its own unique set of words.

**Korean numerals**

**Korean numbers pronunciation**

From 11 to 19, there is a simple way to make numbers. You just need to put 1 from the number 10 and in the place of 0 you have to add any number from 1 to 9. Letβs see examples here-

- μ΄ (10) + νλ (1) = μ΄νλ [yeol-ha-na] = (11)
- μ΄ (10) + λ€μ―(5) = μ΄λ€μ― [yeoldaseot] = (15)
- μ΄ (10) + μν (8) = μ΄μ¬λ [yeol-yuh-deol] = (18)

**NATIVE KOREAN NUMBERS**

The number 100 in the Sino-Korean number is λ°± [baek], and even when you need to use the native Korean number, you can use the same word. The same name is used for the Native numerical system as well.

Though the bigger numbers like 100, 1,000, 10,000 etc., have their own native names, the words for these bigger numbers in the native Korean numbers are no longer used and only sino-Korean numbers are used.

**How to count large numbers in korean?**

We can also use both sino and native for numbers together for counting numbers above 100. Letβs learn some of them

- 101 = λ°± [baek / 100] (sino-Korean) + νλ [ha-na / 1] (native Korean)
- 102 = λ°± [baek / 100] (sino-Korean) + λ [dul/ 2] (native Korean)
- 208 = μ΄ [i / 2] (sino-Korean) + λ°± [baek / 100] (sino-Korean) + μ¬λ [yuh-deol / 8] (native Korean)
- 305 = μΌ [sam / 3] (sino-Korean) + λ°± [baek / 100] (sino-Korean) + λ€μ― [daseot / 5] (native Korean)

**How to count big numbers in Korean?**

Bigger numbers are divided into 10,000 units. Letβs see with examples

10,000 | λ§ | Man |

Therefore, they tend to avoid adding 4 when numbering the car number, apartment number, patientβs room number and an examineeβs seat numberβ as much as possible. So 4 in korean is considered as an unlucky number.

Number 3 is often used when playing games like μ·λμ΄. People always compete 3 times and winning 2 games out of 3 is considered as winning the game.
