    I read on a site: تنحدر قبائل هيوكول من شعوب الأزتيك، ويبلغ عددهم حوالي 18000 فردًا

    If I was to write 18000 in Arabic, would this be correct: ثمانية عشر ألف فردٍ ?

    If so, why is the إعراب of the معدود different in both?

    fardin is correct; fardan is wrong. Mistakes with numbers are very common in Arabic, even in mediaeval texts.
