    word order

    Hi there!

    I'd like to ask someone who speaks English as a native language.

    1. In our culture the number 8 is associated with business in success.

    2. In our culture the number 8 is associated with success in business.

    Which word order is correct?

    Thank you very much.

    2. is correct.
    You could say:
    1. In our culture the number 8 is associated with business success.
    Here business is an adjective, whereas both business and success are nouns in your examples.
