articles for numbers

Hi,

Is the following sentence correct? I am not sure whether I should use ‘the’ before numbers (#)?

'I found the #1 of the sentences given below in a publication. I think I am more comfortable with the #2 and #3. ’

Thanks,

MG.

Sorry, but I don’t understand what you mean +_+

is a short form for number. ‘#3’ means ‘number 3’
