Numbers in Korean

There are two sets of numbers in Korean: the native Korean system and the Sino-Korean
system. The native numbers are used for numbers of items (1-99) and age, while the Sino-
Korean system is based on Chinese numbers and are used for dates, money, addresses,
phone numbers, and numbers above 100.

Western (Arabic) numerals are used for most situations, but the Hanja numerals are
sometimes used for prices.
