Which is correct, in each number, or on each number or for each number? I need to ask questions mentioning that each number has a different instruction.

Any help that includes sentence examples will be so appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hi, Miranda. It is actually not our responsibility to supply sentence examples, but yours. If you could supply one or more context sentences, we might be better able to help you. – Jake Regier Aug 18 '15 at 17:55

Context is king, all of your phrases can be grammatically correct:

In each number from twelve to ninety-nine, the letter "t" appears at least once.

When playing hopscotch, you start the game by jumping on each number in numerical order.

For each number which contains a 3 or is divisible by 3, say "Fizz" instead of the number.


It sounds like this is what you're getting at:

For each number, there will be a different set of instructions.

But Jake is right, to get the best help, please write some example sentences to show us your needs.
