Numeral System A numeral system (or system of numeration) is a writing system for expressing numbers; that is, a mathematical notation for representing numbers of a given set, using digits or other symbols in a consistent manner. It can be seen as the context that allows the symbols "11" to be interpreted as the binary symbol for three, the decimal symbol for eleven, or a symbol for other numbers in different bases. The number the numeral represents is called its value. Ideally, a numeral system will:Represent a useful set of numbers (e.g. all integers, or rational numbers) Give every number represented a unique representation (or at least a standard representation) Reflect the algebraic and arithmetic structure of the numbers.For example, the usual decimal representation of whole numbers gives every nonzero whole number a unique representation as a finite sequence of digits, beginning with a nonzero digit [...More...]  "Numeral System" on: Wikipedia Yahoo

Attic Numerals Attic numerals Attic numerals were used by the ancient Greeks, possibly from the 7th century BC. They were also known as Herodianic numerals because they were first described in a 2ndcentury manuscript by Herodian. They are also known as acrophonic numerals because the symbols derive from the first letters of the words that the symbols represent: five, ten, hundred, thousand and ten thousand.

Vietnamese Numerals Historically Vietnamese has two sets of numbers: one is etymologically native Vietnamese; the other uses SinoVietnamese vocabulary. In the modern language the native Vietnamese vocabulary is used for both everyday counting and mathematical purposes. The SinoVietnamese vocabulary is used only in fixed expressions or in SinoVietnamese words. This is somewhat analogous to the way in which Latin and Greek numerals are used in modern English (e.g., the bi in bicycle). SinoVietnamese words are also used for units of ten thousand or above, where native vocabulary was lacking.Contents1 Concept 2 Basic figures 3 Other figures 4 Ordinal numbers 5 Footnotes 6 See alsoConcept[edit] Among the languages of the Chinese cultural sphere, Japanese and Korean both use two numerical systems, one native and one Chinesebased.

Javanese Numerals The Javanese language Javanese language has a decimal numeral system with distinct words for the 'tweens' from 21 to 29, called likuran. The basic numerals 1–10 have independent and combining forms, the latter derived via a suffix ng. The combining forms are used to form the tens, hundreds, thousands, and millions. The numerals 1–5 and 10 have distinct highregister (halus, or in Javanese krama) and low register (ngoko) forms. The halus forms are listed below in italics. (Dasa 10 is derived from Sanskrit désa.) Like English, Javanese has compound forms for the teens; however, it also has a series of compound 'tweens', 21–29. The teens are based on a root (wə)las, the tweens on likur, and the tens are formed by the combining forms [...More...]  "Javanese Numerals" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Āryabhaṭa Numeration The Āryabhaṭa numeration Āryabhaṭa numeration is a system of numerals based on Sanskrit phonemes. It was introduced in the early 6th century in India by Āryabhaṭa, in the first chapter titled Gītika Padam of his Aryabhatiya. It attributes a numerical value to each syllable of the form consonant+vowel possible in Sanskrit Sanskrit phonology, from ka = 1 up to hau = 1018.Contents1 History 2 Example 3 Numeral table 4 See also 5 ReferencesHistory[edit] The basis of this number system is mentioned in the second stanza of the first chapter of Aryabhatiya. The Varga (Group/Class) letters ka to ma are to be placed in the varga (square) places (1st, 100th, 10000th, etc.) and Avarga letters like ya, ra, la .. have to be placed in Avarga places (10th, 1000th, 100000th, etc.). The Varga letters kak to ma have value from 1, 2, 3 .. up to 25 and Avarga letters ya to ha have value 30, 40, 50.. up to 100 [...More...]  "Āryabhaṭa Numeration" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Dzongkha Numerals Dzongkha, the national language of Bhutan, has two numeral systems, one vigesimal (base 20), and a modern decimal system. The vigesimal system remains in robust use.

Kaktovik Inupiaq Numerals Inuit, like other Eskimo languages (and Celtic and Mayan languages as well), uses a vigesimal counting system. Inuit counting has subbases at 5, 10, and 15. Arabic numerals, consisting of 10 distinct digits (09) are not adequate to represent a base20 system. Students from Kaktovik, Alaska, came up with the Kaktovik Inupiaq numerals,[1] which has since gained wide use among Alaskan Iñupiaq, and is slowly gaining ground in other countries where dialects of the Inuit language are spoken.[2] The numeral system has helped to revive counting in Inuit, which had been falling into disuse among Inuit speakers due to the prevalence of the base10 system in schools. The picture below shows the numerals 1–19 and then 0 [...More...]  "Kaktovik Inupiaq Numerals" on: Wikipedia Yahoo 

Sinhala Numerals Sinhalese belongs to the IndoEuropean language family with its roots deeply associated with IndoAryan sub family to which the languages such as Persian and Hindi belong. Although it is not very clear whether people in Sri Lanka Sri Lanka spoke a dialect of Prakrit at the time of arrival of Buddhism in Sri Lanka, there is enough evidence that Sinhala evolved from mixing of Sanskrit, Magadi (the language which was spoken in Magada Province of India where Lord Buddha was born) and local language which was spoken by people of Sri Lanka Sri Lanka prior to the arrival of Vijaya in Sri Lanka, the founder of Sinhala Kingdom.[1] It is also surmised that Sinhala had evolved from an ancient variant of Apabramsa (middle Indic) which is known as ‘Elu’ [...More...]  "Sinhala Numerals" on: Wikipedia Yahoo
