दस is so close to the French "dix" (ten), and सौ to "cent" (hundred). Actually, the digits are also pretty similar, the closest being दो/"deux", सात/"sept", आठ/"huit", and नौ/"neuf". I wonder whether this is due to a common origin (ancient indo-european language)...

Correct! Numbers in most Indo-European languages sound similar for this very reason!
