And both answers are more correct than "liczba".
The difference between a digit (cyfra) and a number (liczba) is great. A digit is a graphic sign of a number. We have a total of ten digits, which I would like to mention: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. And the number is the result of counting, which we most often express in terms of digits.
"Siedem to CYFRA"
Wiktionary explains "numer" as: "number (used to show the rank of something in a list or sequence)". Like e.g. the player with number 11 on the t-shirt.
"liczba" is basically "number" in maths, an abstract entity. Also "number" of something countable, e.g. "the number of people in the room".
