Base 100 Redirect[edit]

'Base 100' redirects here. However, as far as I understand it, Base 100 and Base 10 (decimal) are NOT necessarily the same. Base 10 uses digits 0-9, while base 100 would essentially 100 separate "digits". Should we make a new page for 'base-100'? Or am I mistaken? 50.196.48.211 (talk) 18:52, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Well, in my personal opinion, Base-100 is not particularly notable. If it has some use I am not aware of then perhaps it is deserving of a base of its own. As far as the redirect goes, I will have to look around to see if we have a page that works better, but you are correct the two are not the same. Thenub314 (talk) 19:07, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

'Base 10', not 'Base-10' or 'Base Ten'[edit]

Accuracy and consistency of terminology is always the goal of a dictionary and encyclopedia. Base 10 is the correct and certainly the most accepted description of the decimal system as opposed to the confusing Base-10 (negative?) or non-numeric Base Ten. I've thus tweaked the article using "Base 10". - Pythagoras 50.153.106.144 (talk) 12:52, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Hebrew Numerals are Base 10[edit]

I added Hebrew numerals where references were made to Greek Numerals and Roman Numerals. - King Solomon 50.153.106.144 (talk) 14:27, 9 June 2015 (UTC)

Decimal in Sanskrit[edit]

The word "decimal" is similar to Sanskrit "dashamlav", meaning "tenth part". I don't know the etymological significance.Sooku (talk) 06:09, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
