It's unclear whether this writing system puts the most significant digit on the left or on the right. Are pronunciation and inscription in the same order as the alphabetic text? -- Beland 03:59, 10 October 2006 (UTC) the writing system puts the most significant digit on the left.
Also, It's not precise to tell that the pronunciation puts the order from right to left. In all media [nowadays formal arabic] & in spoken arabic they start from left to right but they read it in this order: BA if the number is 2 digits; ACB if 3 digits; ABDC if 4 digits; BACED if 5 digits; ACBDFE if 6 digits; ABDCEGF if 7 digits; Example: 21632 will be: One and twenty thousand and six hundred and two and thirty.
I know that telephone numbers are entered into a phone from left to right as written, but are calculators/adding machines which are marketed for the region localized to require input from right to left? Thanks - knoodelhed (talk) 01:51, 22 June 2014 (UTC)
