Lesson 16: Learning the numbers7890
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. KeepF 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.
Number 7 is typed with the J finger — Practice j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7 j7
Number 8 is typed with the K finger — Practice k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8 k8
Number 9 is typed with the L finger — Practice l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9 l9
Number 0 is typed with the Semicolon(;) finger — Practice ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0 ;0

Type for THREE errors or less per line — proofread carefully after a line is typed
Use correct spacing after all punctuation
