Yes, they have. Polish basic form 'dwa' - German zwei - Dutch twee - English two
Polish language has 17 different forms for English 'two'! 1. dwa 2. dwie 3. dwoje 4. dwóch (dwu) 5. dwaj 6. dwiema 7. dwom (dwóm) 8. dwoma 9. dwojga 10. dwojgu 11. dwojgiem 12. dwójka 13. dwójki 14. dwójkę 15. dwójką 16. dwójce 17. dwójko And a number has not only gender> maskulin dwóch or dwaj / feminin dwie / neutrum dwoje, but also cases> genitive, accusative, dativ etc. - Polish differents 7 cases. There is also gender in plural (dwóch, dwie, dwoje).
We can of course list every form for every case, but just looking at Nominative, most numbers have three genders: "not masculine-personal" (it's the basic form), "masculine personal" (to use with nouns describing male people) and collective, if we even consider it a separate gender.
"1" has all the genders that nouns would have (and logically no collective), "2" treats the feminine nouns separately, so while "three books" would use the basic form: "trzy książki", "two books" doesn't use "dwa" but "dwie": "dwie książki".
I think that 'numbers on their own' aren't very common and only make sense when those are round numbers, clearly referring to money. Because that's surely the intention here.
No, not always, if we stay in the money context but change it to just one million, that surely is "Gdzie jest mój milion?".
no. it is always sto milionów (genitive), and the "subject is sto= a hundred - singular
also the question is "czy".
Czyś is very specific question word, its czy+ś, czy ty jesteś =czyś ty jest; czy ty przyszłaś= czyś ty przyszła; czy ty miałeś= czyś ty miał etc. I would not reccomend using it before you are very confident with Polish.
There is a problem with substantivs in plural. Singular milion (but you need to know different forms> miliona [genitive], milionie, milionem etc. because of 7 different cases). Number 2 has other form> plural-dual miliony. Like hand (ręka - 2 ręce). 5 millions - 5 milionów (plural genitive form).
