Compound number example: 12,345 = dua belas ribu tiga ratus empat puluh lima

For ordinals you add the prefix "ke-"; e.g. 2nd is "kedua", 10th is "kesepuluh", 21st is "kedua puluh satu"; however, although accepted, "kesatu" is rarely used for 1st; "pertama" (a Sanskrit loanword) is widely used instead for both Malay and Indonesian.
