four > fourth
ten > tenth
Mind this:
fifty > fiftieth
seventy > seventieth
One hundred > one hundredth
Exceptions are: 
one > first (or 1st).
 two > second (or 2nd).
three > third (or 3rd)

And for some ordinals there are changes in spelling:
five > fifth
eight > eighth

A few things that you must also remember!

 Er staat een - tussen de tientallen (decimals) en de enen (numerals) als je hoger gaat dan 20:
21 is written as twenty-one, 22 is written as twenty-two etc.

21st is written as twenty-first, 22nd is written as twenty-second, 23rd is written as twenty-third etc.

One more thing...
When you come to the hundreds or even thousands you spell them as if you count the hundreds/thousands/millions.
Like so:

(note that there's no hyphen!)
