Write Arabic Numbers 1 to 10

Edited by Hotelier, priya, Rushell, Eng

Hello, and thank you for watching VisiHow. In today's tutorial, we will learn how to write the Arabic language form of the numbers 1 to 10. We can see them written on the board in English, as well as the name of the number in Arabic. The top from right to left is 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, and on the bottom is 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10. In English, we say that we write Arabic numerals, but in the Arabic language, the numbers do look different. We'll go through them one by one in case you ever need to write down the Arabic form of the number without writing the word.
