1. The number TWO has two forms: 'kettő' and 'két' . The later is used only attributvely before a noun, adjective or adverb. For example :
két lány -- 2 girls
két könyv -- 2 books
'Kettő' is used in all other cases. For example:
Kettőt vettem. -- I bought two.
Kettőkor elmegyek. -- I will leave at 2.

2. The nouns, adverbs are always SINGULAR after a number in Hungarian. Never use plural!
For example:
két fiú -- 2 boys
száz fa -- 100 trees
ezer tanuló -- 1,000 students

3. In writing Hungarians use comma instead of decimal point. In a large number leave space when a comma is used in English.
For example:
Hungarian English
15 342 15,342
42,55 42.55
