"I have the last books."
Translation:Ik heb de laatste boeken.
Is it 'het boek', and 'de boeken'? And could anyone explain the rules for when to add an '-e' to the end of an adjective? Is it related to the gender of the noun?
Can anyone explain when to use het and when to use de? It seems arbitrary so far!

In short, there are some rules, though it's best to learn it with each word (similar to German). Some rules that always apply though:
- Singular diminutives always use het.
- Plurals (so also plural diminutives) always use de.
