    why ''no'' for ''Number''?

    Hi,

    1: why do we have to write 'No.' when we abbreviate ''Number'' as there's no ''o'' in ''Number''?

    2: ''Thank you for apprising me of your children ages!'' correct?

    3: "Apprise me of your age now." correct?

    1. "no" is the short of Latin numero as far as I know
