10 is a 1 and a zero we have 9 digits and 0 which is none
A base primer
10 the 1 is in the 10x column the 0 is in the 1 column
digit are single characters we use 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 and zero which is the lack of a digit or value in a given column
remember high school
100 is 1 x100 + 0 x10 + 0 x1 so 100 + 0 +0 =100
123 is 1 x100 + 2 x10 + 3 x1 100+20+3=123
in base 11 the digits are 123456789A then comes 10
in base 17 the digits are 123456789ABCDEFG then comes 10
10 is not a digit it is a numeral
I think you can see the fun-de-mental error
you made say ing 10 was a digit.
I'm not sure about this, but I don't think that the ancient Hebrews used arabic numbers for 1-10. My understanding is that they used their aleph-bet
for letters and numbers.
You are right and there numbers are kind of set up like 100's 10's and 1's
so ask a rabbi how bases are set up in Hebrew
In that case the Hebrew equivalent of D would be base 4, and the equivalent of G would be base 7.
No base 4 uses only the digits 1 2 3 then 10 11 12 13 20 21 22 23 30 31 32 33 100 101 102 103 110
this is the first 20 numerals in base 4 (4-1 digits) for all bases X have X - 1 digits
Don't you see this fundamental flaw?
Don't you see the fun - de - mental flaw I was pointing out that Moses could not have known that the specific number of commandments first and last
would make the word G_d but wait that's the name of the guy he said he got them from. Thou he went by many aliases back then he generally goes by
G_d now.
G
