1st, 2nd, 3rd are ordinal numbers - numbers which allow us to define a thing's position in a series.

You should learn them. They are below:

 1st first 2nd second 3rd third (from 'three') 4th fourth 5th fifth (from 'five') 6th sixth 7th seventh 8th eighth (ONE 't') 9th ninth (NO 'e') 10th tenth 11th eleventh 12th twelfth (from 'two') 13th thirteenth 14th fourteenth 15th fifteenth 16th sixteenth 17th seventeenth 18th eighteenth 19th nineteenth 20th twentieth (Warning: -y => -i)

 21st twenty-first 22nd twenty-second 23rd twenty-third 24th twenty-fourth 25th twenty-fifth 26th twenty-sixth 27th twenty-seventh 28th twenty-eighth (one 't') 29th twenty-ninth (NO 'e') 30th thirtieth 31st thirty-first

Monday, April 24.. 2036

The number ends in "-th". The correct spelling is:

Monday, April 24th 2036
(Monday, the twenty-fourth of April 2036)

Be careful with these ordinal numbers: 11th, 12th and 13th.

Good luck!
