Numerals must precede adjectives, just like determiners:

Example 1

De fiif freonen
the five friends
The five friends

The order is as follows: 1: numeral - 2: adjective - 3: noun. Any permutation of the three elements in the phrase above is ungrammatical. This is illustrated below for the permutation 213 in which the adjective precedes the numeral:

Example 2

*Fiif de freonen
five the friends
The five friends
