why don't we say nyolcvanmásodik?

"Második" is only used with the number 2 (two).
Similarly, "első" (first) is only used with the number 1 (one). Any other number ending with '1' will be "...egyedik".

Is definite article always required with the ordinals? I don't think I have seen an example without it in this lesson.

I'm looking forward to this language no longer being in beta so I can slow down the talking speed. Whew, is this a lot of quick syllabes.
