Note that:

All ordinal numbers are declined like weak adjectives, except ōþer, which is always declined like a strong adjective.

One, when declined like a strong adjective, means one, but when it is declined like a weak adjective it means alone.

There are two words for two: tweġen and beġen; tweġen in the forefather of the Modern English "two" and beġen is related to the Modern English "both".

Here the the declensions for tweġen/twā/tū ("two") and þrīe/þrēo ("three"), both being declined irregularly:
