    1. Mirna = check the spelling of the name

    ordinal numbers = primero, primera but primer in front of a masculine singular noun: Juan es primero. Juan es el primer chico. Juanita es la primera
    segundo, -a
    tercero, -a (tercer)
    cuarto, -a
    quinto -a
    sexto -a
    séptimo, -a
    octavo, -a
    noveno, -a
    décimo - a

    Ordinal numbers are only used through tenth; byond that, the cardinal numbers are used. You will see some alternate forms, but they are not usual, 12th = duodécimo, for example.

    When a cardinal number is used in place of an ordinal, it is always conidered masculine, since "número" is understood.
    The numerals primero and tercero drop the final -o before a masculine singular noun. el primer día but el día primero.
