Which ordinal to use

How can I know which form of the ordinal number to use? For example, twelfth has three forms. Are there particular circumstances when one is called for in lieu of another?

Sorry for not writing in Spanish. I´m not there yet.W

Hola V 

You can use any - they are interchangeable and all correct.

The term duodécimo is older, while décimo primero or decimoprimero are more modern, but they are all the same. 

Saludos
