Extractions: The Base 10 number systems makes use of 10 digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. Numbers above 9, such as 10, are actually a combination of numbers in the sequence above. In the case of 10 it is a combination of 1 and 0. This forces a positioning of the digits (like 1 and 0) into a given location within a number. In the example of number 10 has two digits, 1 and 0. The 1 is the second digit to the left of the assumed decimal place. Because it is in the second position to the left of the decimal it has the value of 10. The 1 indicates that there is only 1 number in the placement value worth 10. The 1 indicates that there are no numbers for the placement value of 1. Look at the table below and fill in the placement values up to 1,000,000.

Extractions: UVa Physics Department Index of Lectures and Overview of the Course Spanish Version of this Lecture Sumer and Babylonia , located in present-day Iraq , were probably the first peoples to have a written language, beginning in Sumer in about 3100 BC. The language continued to be written until the time of Christ, but then it was completely forgotten, even the name Sumer became unknown until the nineteenth century. From the earliest times, the language was used for business and administrative documents. Later, it was used for writing down epics, myths, etc., which had earlier probably been handed down by oral tradition, such as the Epic of Gilgamesh. In about 2500 BC, by Royal Edict, weights and measures were standardized in Babylon . This was a practical business decision, which without doubt eliminated much tension in the marketplace. The smallest unit of length was the finger, about 2/3 of an inch. The cubit was 30 fingers. The cord (surveyor's rope) was 120 cubits, that is, 3600 fingers. The league was 180 cords, about seven miles. By 2000 BC, there was a calendar with a year of 360 days, 12 months of 30 days each, with an extra month thrown in every six years or so to keep synchronized with astronomical observations.

http://www.maxmon.com/1900bc.htm

Extractions: The First Place-Value Number System The decimal system with which we are fated is a place-value system, which means that the value of a particular digit depends both on the digit itself and on its position within the number. For example, a four in the right-hand column simply means four ...... in the next column it means forty ...... one more column over means four-hundred ...... then four thousand, and so on. For many arithmetic operations, the use of a number system whose base is wholly divisible by many numbers, especially the smaller values, conveys certain advantages. And so we come to the Babylonians, who were famous for their astrological observations and calculations, and who used a sexagesimal (base-60) numbering system (see also The invention of the abacus a Although sixty may appear to be a large value to have as a base, it does convey certain advantages. Sixty is the smallest number that can be wholly divided by two, three, four, five, and six ...... and of course it can also be divided by ten, fifteen, twenty, and thirty. In addition to using base sixty, the Babylonians also made use six and ten as sub-bases. a The Babylonian's sexagesimal system, which first appeared around 1900 to 1800 BC, is also credited as being

Pythagoras uses an Abacus, while Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius (480 AD-524 AD) uses Numerals from India. Boethius looks very proud, he is ready while the poor Pythagoras still tries to find the solution. "Ten is the very nature of number. All Greeks and all barbarians alike count up to ten, and having reached ten revert again to the unity. And again, Pythagoras maintains, the power of the number 10 lies in the number 4, the tetrad. This is the reason: if one starts at the unit (1) and adds the successive number up to 4, one will make up the number 10 (1+2+3+4 = 10). And if one exceeds the tetrad, one will exceed 10 too.... So that the number by the unit resides in the number 10, but potentially in the number 4. And so the Pythagoreans used to invoke the Tetrad as their most binding oath: `By him that gave to our generation the Tetractys, which contains the fount and root of eternal nature...'"

http://www.thekeep.org/~kunoichi/kunoichi/themestream/egypt_maths.html

Extractions: The Ancient Egyptian Number System In ancient Egypt mathematics was used for measuring time, straight lines, the level of the Nile floodings, calculating areas of land, counting money, working out taxes and cooking. Maths was even used in mythology - the Egyptians figured out the numbers of days in the year with their calendar . They were one of the ancient peoples who got it closest to the 'true year', though their mathematical skills. Maths was also used with fantastic results for building tombs, pyramids and other architectural marvels. A part of the largest surviving mathematical scroll, the Rhind Papyrus (written in hieratic script), asks questions about the geometry of triangles. It is, in essence, a mathematical text book. The surviving parts of the papyrus show how the Egyptian engineers calculated the proportions of pyramids as well as other structures. Originally, this papyrus was five meters long and thirty three centimeters tall. It is again to the Nile Valley that we must look for evidence of the early influence on Greek mathematics. With respect to geometry, the commentators are unanimous: the mathematician-priests of the Nile Valley knew no peer. The geometry of Pythagoras, Eudoxus, Plato, and Euclid was learned in Nile Valley temples. Four mathematical papyri still survive, most importantly the Rhind mathematical papyrus dating to 1832 B.C. Not only do these papyri show that the priests had mastered all the processes of arithmetic, including a theory of number, but had developed formulas enabling them to find solutions of problems with one and two unknowns, along with "think of a number problems." With all of this plus the arithmetic and geometric progressions they discovered, it is evident that by 1832 B.C., algebra was in place in the Nile Valley.

Extractions: The Yoruba people currently number over 15 million. According to their legends, they came from the East, to settle in what is now Nigeria, Togo, and the Republic of Benin (Dahomey). Many historians believe that the Yoruba migrated to their present home from Upper Egypt, between 600 and 1000 A.D. They are city-dwellers. Their ancient cities of Ife and Oyo were founded between 800 and 1000 A.D. The Yoruba have always had a monarch, whom they believe to be descended from their gods. However, the Yoruba government and social structure is not dictatorial. Responsibilities are shared. Although recognition and respect for rank is evident, there is also the possibility of moving up in rank through hard work. In fact, the Yoruba describe their culture as "a river that is never at rest". The Yoruba were great traders. The city of Oyo, founded by a group of traders, was positioned to control trade routes all the way to the coast. They traded gold, slaves, and cocoa. THE YORUBA NUMBER SYSTEM In her book

Extractions: Here's a neat little ditty you can easily slip into your bag of tricks. The Nashville Number System is a very easy reference tool, created in Nashville (duh!), by some studio cats, no doubt. I imagine what occurred was, the need to try a number of different keys on any given song, in any given session, was the Mother of Invention here. I could be way off on that, but I'm stickin' to it until someone informs me otherwise. Anyone who has studied the slightest amount of music theory, chord structures, and/or harmony, understands the numerical theory behind the Nashville System. For example, the "3rd" in a C chord is an E note; using the root (C) as the number one, and counting sequencially upwards ... C = 1, D = 2, and E = 3 ... we know that to play a "3rd over a C," means to play an E note. Naturally, the "3rd" in an E chord (E/1, F/2, G/3) is G# ... because, of course, a G in the E Major scale is always sharp - you knew that ... right? No matter you can just use my chart (below) and skip all that stuff.

Main Menu The Ithkuil system of numbers and counting is distinct from Western languages in two fundamental ways: it is centesimal (base one hundred) as opposed to decimal (base ten), and the numbers themselves are full formatives (i.e., nouns and verbs), not adjectives. This has already been discussed briefly in Section 4.5.7 regarding the PARTITIVE case. This section will examine the numerical system in greater detail. 12.1 FEATURES OF A CENTESIMAL NUMBER SYSTEM (100 million, i.e., 10,000 ten-thousands). The final unit is While the above may seem unwieldy or even arbitrary, it actually parallels Western base-ten numerals in terms of its systematization. For example, in a Western number like 456,321,777,123, each set of three numbers between the commas tells how many hundreds there are of a certain power of 1000 (i.e., there are 123 of , 777 of , 321 of , and 456 of , or in more common terms 123 ones, 777 thousands, 321 millions, 456 billions).

Because of its relationship with the binary system, it is useful in programming some types of computers. Look closely at the comparison of binary and octal number systems in table 1-3. You can see that one octal digit is the equivalent value of three binary digits. The following examples of the conversion of octal 225 to binary and back again further illustrate this comparison: Table 1-3. - Binary and Octal Comparison Unit and Number The terms that you learned in the decimal and binary sections are also used with the octal system. The unit remains a single object, and the number is still a symbol used to represent one or more units. Base (Radix) As with the other systems, the radix, or base, is the number of symbols used in the system. The octal system uses eight symbols - through 7. The base, or radix, is indicated by the subscript 8.

http://web01.shu.edu/projects/reals/infinity/reals.html

Extractions: 2.4. The Real Number System IRA In the previous chapter we have defined the integers and rational numbers based on the natural numbers and equivalence relations. We have also used the real numbers as our prime example of an uncountable set. In this section we will actually define - mathematically correct - the 'real numbers' and establish their most important properties. There are actually several convenient ways to define R . Two possible methods of construction are: Right now, however, it will be more important to describe those properties of R that we will need for the remainder of this class. The first question is: why do we need the real numbers ? Arent the rationals good enough ? Theorem 2.4.1: No Square Roots in Q There is no rational number x such that x = x * x = 2 Proof Thus, we see that even simple equations have no solution if all we knew were rational numbers. We therefore need to expand our number system to contain numbers which do provide a solution to equations such as the above. There is another reason for preferring real over rational numbers: Informally speaking, while the rational numbers are all 'over the place', they contain plenty of holes (namely the irrationals). The real numbers, on the other hand, contain no holes. A little bit more formal, we could say that the rational numbers are not closed under the limit operations, while the real numbers are. More formally speaking, we need some definitions.
