- "Noch mehr Zahlen"

## 15 Comments

The number can be in German "die Zahl", "die Nummer" or "die Anzahl". An example for "eine Nummer" is "die Hausnummer" or "die Telefonnummer" of a person. Anzahl: How many guests have come? Answer: "Die Anzahl unserer GĂ¤ste (genitive case: of our guests) ist 34." Zahlen: Noch mehr Zahlen, noch mehr Mathematik: ganze Zahlen und Bruchzahlen, positive Zahlen und negative Zahlen, reelle Zahlen und Realzahlen and last not least "die Primzahlen".

The person speaking the sentence would be talking about some lines or symbols written on paper. The symbols represent numbers, but the person isn't talking about numbers; just the symbols.

So this sentence could mean a really long phone number, or zip code, or PIN, or IP address. It could mean a mathematical equation. Or it might mean a list of numbers.
