The chart below is another way to learn numbers

1. Look at the first number that you come to in the first row.

It is a two.

2. Read the black word at the top of that column

It is tekau.

3. Before
you can say the last number in the next column,

you say ma, followed by the last number,

which is a one.

Putting the whole lot together you get:

rua tekau ma tahi = 21

ma

mano rau tekau

2 1

Follow the above pattern to translate the next line.

Start with
the four.

ma

mano rau tekau

4 3 5
