"Nummer" is used when the number is part of an organized collection of numbers, like a phone number. "Zahl" is used when you just have a number, like an integer in math. The sentence above should probably be "eins ist eine Zahl."
To WolfStriker1: I think 'Zahl' would be equivalent to the English word 'digit' (numbers from zero to nine). Am I correct? I am waiting for your answer. Greetings. May 10, 2016.
So in English, it would be 'numeral, digit' for Zahl and 'number' for Nummer?
Untuk orang Indonesia, Zahl = 'angka' dan Nummer = 'nomor', bener gak?
The numeral 1 is Eins.
Ein/eine/etc. is the indefinite article and means "a/an" or "one (of something)”.
You would use Eins when doing mathematics, or reading out a telephone number. But if you would ask for "One beer please!" you would use Ein.
"Ich bin nicht eine Nummer, ich bin ein frei Mann!" Iron Maiden, Deutsched.
ein = an (masc./neuter)
eins = a numeral
Eins und eins sind zwei.
Ein Bier, bitte!
Nummer is pronounced exactly like in Romanian. We just spell it differently, număr :)
'Nummer' is feminine, therefore 'eine' is the appropriate indefinite article. And remember to capitalize your nouns.

The number 1 when used for counting or in math is "eins" http://german.about.com/library/anfang/blanfang07.htm
The article ein/ein/eine/eine (masculine/neuter/feminine/plural) means "a", "an", or "one" as describing a noun. http://german.about.com/library/anfang/blanfang03.htm
When I was a kid - a good long time ago - we used to count out (like eenie,meenie, mynie, mo) with "Eins, zwei, drei, horsengoggle." I have no idea where "horsengoggle" came from - I'd guess a corruption of some German phase.
Does any native speaker of German have any idea of a possible German word or phrase which "horsengoggle" might be a corruption of?
It was in Michigan, USA. I don't remember whether it was just me and my siblings who said this or whether our friends did it too.
I should add we had a grandfather who immigrated (by himself!) at age 13 (1889) from Germany. This may well be where we learned it, although I don't remember HIM ever saying it. I don't remember whether it was just me and my siblings or whether our friends did it too.
He used very little German in front of us, although he regularly said, "Schlafen sie wohl!" at bedtime when we visited. The only other German I remember hearing from him was a table grace: "Komm' lieber Herr Jesu/ Sei unser Gast/ Segne alles was du/ Uns bescheren hast." I took German in college (after two years of it in High School - first German class in our town since World War II) and started writing letters to Grandpa "auf Deutsch". By then he was a very old man, and he seemed so pleased by this. I struggled with his handwriting when he wrote back - the handwriting he had learned as a child was very different from the handwriting he used to write English, which was the common English cursive. But he wrote German in Fraktur (which is spiky - reminded me of an electrocardiogram). One of my German profs was kind enough to help me decipher the Fraktur. I have just googled "Fraktur handwriting" and found some examples - you may not think this is as hard to read as I indicated, but remember his writing had the added shakiness of an old man in his late 80's, then early 90's.
I just looked-up Fraktur writing, I recognise it but didn't know its' name. Again, an interesting memory, thank you.
Please express why this sentence does not make sense. It makes perfect sense to me.
the thing confused me with the first translation of eins being a so I accidentlly wrote "a is a number" -_-
in computers: "1" - String (str) 1 - Integer (number) (int) 1 - (1 or 0) Boolean (true) (Bool)
Hey i have a question it has nothing to do with this question though how do you pronounce souber? Sober or Zouber Bitte! Danke!!!!
Should be "ein." You only add the S if it is the last word in the sentence
No, the position in the sentence has nothing to do with it. The number "one" always translates to "eins", if used in isolation. In front of a noun, the numeral is modified in the same manner as the indefinite article (corresponding to gender and case).
I have a question. I asked my mum (she is German, but I am not) and she said that "one" iz "einz" on German and not "eins". Is it possible that we learn diffrent German here than German in Germany?
She's just remembering incorrectly. Eins is pronounced 'einz', but it is spelt correctly here.
Either that or the spelling changed recently, which is unlikely.
"Eine" is either "a" or "an" for feminine or plural nouns. In English, "an" is only used before a vowel sound. "Ein" is either "a" or "an" also, but is for Masculine or Neuter nouns in Nominative case and Neuter nouns in Accusative case. Masculine nouns in Accusative case use "einen". http://german.about.com/library/blcase_sum.htm
Adjectives change endings for number (singular and plural), gender (masculine, neuter, feminine) and case (Nominative, Accusative, Dative, Genitive).
I have done all these exercises but they did not register. Please stop sending them to me to do all over again. B.Maizels
