It's arithmetic, which is unfortunately about as much math as a vast majority ever get to grips with.
Ah yes, "arithmetic," one of the three r's along with "reading" and "writing" that are the pillars of our education system.

... ... ...

Guys, don't panic, but I think there might be a problem with our education system
Why; isnt your childrens learning good?
What's learning? Is that like memorizing?
Yes. Most of the time the place value of a digit in a written number is a multiple of a power of ten. This time we were using powers of eleven.

Freakin' ninjas.
Is that like how hexadecimal has 16 numbers instead of 10?
Exactly that.
Funnily enough, the number of digits in any base is always 10 (in that base).
Ok so... yeah... it'd be 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, then what for base 11?
A, 10 usually.

A to Z are commonly used for extra digits up to 36. I don't know of any convention beyond that.

3609 for me.
That's probably 11,111 in base 3 or something obscure like that.
Lots of special stuff about 3609

Also, this is pretty cool.

Possibly the coolest, though, is Base 27.

I suppose it also has a other neat stuff, but that is on DIAV to share.
Nah, it was just how many posts I had at the time, since others seemed to be claiming random milestones.

Sorry to disappoint you.

I did like the base27 thing Tara.
