I wrote "It is the bedroom of our five children." Why is that wrong?

Is it correct to assume that ordinal numbers (fourth, fifth, sixth,...) are expressed as "o/a quarto/cinco/seis..." (after we pass primeiro, segundo, terceiro)?

Yes, o primeiro, o segundo, o terceiro, o quarto, o quinto, o sexto... since they are more specific...
