# Lesson 14: Learning the numbers123

Numbers are best
learned when associated with the corresponding home row finger. Read
the paragraph **Finger Positions** to avoid retyping due to
incorrect fingerings for each number. Keep
F
and
J
fingers on keys
— rotate
the hand for the number row.

No more than 3 errors per line. Retype the line if more than 3 errors occur. Observing your typing errors by you and your teacher is an important step toward learning to type and improving accuracy. Typing errors cannot be corrected using the backspace, delete, or arrow keys.
