Ordinal numbers: result from counting. Objects can only be counted when some come first, and others come afterwards.

Cardinal numbers: they are the basic numbers of the infinite numbers (not the ordinal numbers). They are not obtained by sorting and counting, but by a different method, which, if necessary, shows whether a quantity is bigger.
This method does not say in the same way as counting how many elements a set has! Each element is linked to a number in pairs. Thus, infinite sets are defined numerically.
