 This website blog chronicles my exploration into using symbology to represent alternative numerical base systems. My ultimate goal is to uncover and simplify known, and unknown, mathematical processes and connections between these systems. This is a hobby and should be taken as such. Thanks for visiting.

Introduction

# 020 Dozenapentic (60) Introduction

The ancient Mayans the this base system because of its many factors.

# 021 Tetrapenhex (120) Introduction

120 is the factorial of 5, and the sum of a twin prime pair (59 + 61).

# 022 Dozenapenhex (360) Introduction

360 is the smallest number divisible by every natural number from 1 to 10 except 7.

At first glance, 432 seems like a strange choice for a number base, but it may prove to be an important number in unifying bases twelve, sixteen and twenty seven. Read More...

# 026 Bidozenapenhex (720) Introduction

It is 6! (6 factorial), a composite number with thirty divisors, more than any number below, making it a highly composite number. Read More...
