Why it's not Zahl, but Nummer?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ColbyStein

Nummer is when you are using the number in relation to something (His house is number 3/Er Haus ist Nummer drei)

"Sein Haus ist Nummer drei." would be correct.

But for me is the german sentence not natural. I would here say "Drei ist eine Zahl."
