I think "figure" is misleading. I find "number" to be more appropriate. When I first saw it I though about the human figure, not a number.

Are Zahl and Ansahl the same thing? Or is there a difference? So far duolingo has taught me that "zahl" = "figure" and "anzahl" = "quantity" but here it says both mean "figure". Help?

You are right. "Number"/"figure" are usually the best translations of "Zahl" and "amount"/"quantity" work best for "Anzahl".
