it is a system where you multiply by ten to get the next higher place. Additional answer I think the questioner meant decimal
water. its all based on water. 1m^3 of water is one liter. 1cm^3 is 0.01liter. 1mm^3 is 0.001liter. thats how length is used in relation to volume in the metric system. the number that its all based on is 10. we have ten fingers, ten toes. our whole number system is based around ten. the metric syst…em works in tens. imperial is messed up with divisions of 16. think about it... one tonne metric is 1000kilograms... what is it imperial? 2000 something pounds. like that makes sense. or inches into a yard, or yards in a mile. its 100centimeters in a meter. 1000 meters in a kilometer. too easy. Further answer The questioner asks what NUMBER the metric system is based on. Water is not a number. However,. it's one of the things that can be measured by the metric system. And the other things are everything. The number the system is based on is ten. However, the argument about whether it's better than the imperial system continues. Those who haven't used imperial don't see its advantages. (MORE)
10. SI units are based on the decimal system. For many purposes they can be seen as based on a system of 1000.
The US system that is based on the number 10 is the base 10 system.In the base 10 system the numbers roll over every 10; example10,20,30.
The metric system is based on multiples of ten, but there are a few other interesting details. It was invented in conjunction with the French Revolution, which also introduced a new calendar, new holidays, and all sorts of other things that didn't catch on so well. They wanted a measuring system …that was completely logical and rational. They started with the meter, which was 1 / 10,000,000 of the distance from the Equator to the North Pole on a line running straight north and south through Paris. (It was the FRENCH revolution, after all.) 1000 meters was a kilometer, 1/100 of a meter was a centimeter, and so on. They defined their basic unit of weight, the gram, as the weight as one cubic centimeter of water. The basic unit of volume was the liter, defined as 1000 cubic centimeters. This basic correlation between weight, volume, and distance makes shifting from one to another very easy, for any everyday purpose. Unfortunately, they weren't entirely correct about the distance from the Equator to the Pole. The standard gram weight they created wasn't exactly the weight of one cubic centimeter of water. And so on. The meter, gram, and liter we have now are therefore just arbitrary; they don't exactly correspond to each other the way those who designed the metric system wished. They're close enough, though, that only those who need calculations accurate to a small fraction of a percent have to worry about the differences. (MORE)
The 0 through 9 systems are synthesis and borrowing of twonumerical systems. The Hindu-Arabic system allowed for the placingof zero to signify an empty number.
It is called Hexadecimal, and consists of the numbers 0-9 followed by the letters A-F. A=10 B=11 C=12 D=13 E=14 and F=15 Data is stored on computer in Binary Digits (BITS) which count up in 0 and 1 and can be grouped into 4 bits (BYTE) so the full hexadecimal table is as follows:- Hex Bin…ary 0 0000 1 0001 2 0010 3 0011 4 0100 5 0101 6 0110 7 0111 8 1000 9 1001 A 1010 B 1011 C 1100 D 1101 E 1110 F 1111 (MORE)
Within the metric system all units are based on the number 10. Theonly countries in the world that do not use the metric system areLiberia, Myanmar, and the United States of America.
Our number system is based on base 10 . This means that every extra digit indicates another power of 10, for example, 100 is 10 (10^1) times greater than 10, and 100 (10^2) times greater than 1, and for the sake of the argument, 10^3 (1000) times greater than 0.1
In each place value there are only 10 digits that can be placed, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0. At that point then next place value is used. A different place value system in computers is the based two system. Its number system goes like this 0=0 1=1 10=2 11=3 100=4
1. Well, the number 10 is the base of the base 10 number system. The number 12 is the base of the base 12 number system. 2. I don't think the above expresses the answer quite accurately. The base ten numbering system (which is what we use in everyday life, because we have ten fingers, and which i…s called the decimal system) is restricted to ten integers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9). The integers of a base "twelve" numbering system could be represented by these ten integers plus two more, which we could call A and B (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B) So in a base "twelve" system the number we write as "12" in the decimal system would be written as "10", "23" would be written as "1B". The easiest way to understand this is to write the base ten numbers in a row and the equivalent base twelve numbers in a row immediately below. Base sixteen numbers (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, F) (hexadecimal) are commonly used in computing applications. - 3. Base of number system define how many digits it uses in that number system. As illustrated below Binary numbers as the name suggest uses only two digits which are 0 and 1. combination of 0's and 1's are used for representing other numbers. this system is used to communicate with machine so machine understandable language is known as machine language. Similarly in Octal number system 8(octal) digits starting from 0 thru 7 like wise decimal(=10) system 0 thru 9 hexadecimal(=16) 0 thru 9 and A thru F to constitute 16 digits. - (MORE)
In the decimal system, each place-value position is worth 10 times the position to the right. A base-20 numbering system works the same, but with a factor of 20. Note that this would require 20 different digits or other symbols.
That system is called the Arabic System. It was invented by the Hindus, adopted by the Persians, and passed to the Arabs.
The number system that uses a base of 10 and the valid numbers are0 to 9 is the decimal system.
The Roman numeral system works by having separate symbols to represent different numbers but unlike our system there was no symbol for zero. Essentially we have 9 numbers and then add a zero on the end to denote 10s, two zeros to denote 100s and so on. the Romans simply had additional symbols to den…otes 10s, 100s etc. Examples of Roman numerals and how they are worked out follows... 1 = I 2 = II (1 + 1) 3 = III (1+ 1 + 1) 4 = IV (1 before 5) 5 = V then the system repeats... 6 = VI (5 + 1) 7 = VII (5 + 1 + 1) 8 = VIII (5 + 1 + 1 + 1) 9 = IX (1 before 10) 10 = X Additional numerals exist for 50 (L), 100 (C), 500 (D) and 1000 (M) and they work on the same system so, for example... XX = 20 XXX = 30 XL = 40 CCC = 300 CD = 400 CM = 900 (MORE)
The metric system is in base 10, things are counted using tens; but the units tend to set out in thousands. a metre is divided into millimetres, 1m=1000mm, and multiplied into kilometres, 1km=1000m. There are prefixes for divisions and multiples of 10 and 100,but, except for centimetres, these are…n't generally used. (MORE)
The number system that most people use is the decimal, or base 10,system. It has this name because it involves 10 steps: 0, 1, 2, 3,4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. It's essential characteristic is that it is positional . I can count 1, 2, 3, and so on, until I reach9, at which point I use the next position to the… left and theremaining zero symbol to make 10. Other bases work in exactly the same way-even if they seemunfamiliar. For example, I can count in base 3: 1 3 ,2 3 , 10 3 , 11 3 , 12 3 ,20 3 , 21 3 , 22 3 , 30 3 , .... The most important non-decimant base is base two, binary, which isthe one use by computers. It's just two steps, 0 and 1, becausecomputers use switches which are either 'on' or 'off'. But it worksin the same way. (MORE)
The base of a counting system are the building blocks of the system. We normally count in base ten. Big numbers are written in powers of ten with (from the RIGHT ), units, tens, hundreds (= 10 tens), thousands (= 10 hundreds), etc. Computers store and process information in base 2 (binary) or ba…se 16 (hexadecimal). Ancient Baby;onians used base 60 - remnants of which can still be seen in minutes and seconds. Many European cultures used twenty (think of French numbers over 60). Base 12 (dozens and gross) are other examples. (MORE)
The metric system is based on the number 10 . This is because we have 10 fingers and our counting system (decimal) is based off of that fact. We have 10 digits: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9. After that, we start to make numbers based off of numbers we already have. 10, 35, 8172 and so on.
Our numbers (1,2,3 etc) are based on the decimal system, or thebase 10 system. However many other number systems are in common use. Computers usea binary (base 2), octal (base 8) or hexidecimal (base 16). Thefaces of clocks, the months of the year, degrees in circle anddozens are all based on an old… base 12 system of notation. Fortunately the Mayan system, a vigesimal (base 20 system, hasmostly died out. The only exception seems to be the interest in2012 due to the completion of a baktun (properly b'ak'tun) of 20katun cycles of the ancient Maya Long Count Calendar used in arecent movie. (MORE)
The Mayans based on the 20 number system because of 10 fingers and 10 toes. The Mayan number was very useful to the Mayans in the past. Today, they use the modern number system we use today.
The base ten number system is very old and was almost certainly developed in a number of different places. The reason for this is that many people learn to count on their fingers, particularly in cultures that do not discourage the practice, and most people have ten fingers. There is at least on pl…ace (in Spain) where most people have twelve fingers, and local people there often use a base twelve number system. Early cultures had other systems, usually more complicated, such as the ancient Babylonian system of twenties and sixties, which historically gave us a circle of 360 degrees. The 360 degree circle is better suited to mathematics than a 100 degree circle, so it has historically been retained. Some sociaties have chosen simpler systems, such as binary. But the ten-based system seems to be cross cultural and most common world-wide. Its development is certainly prehistoric. (MORE)
The ancient Egyptian numeric system did not operate on a "base" system such as we use today; it is true that the system used units, tens, hundreds, thousands, ten thousands and so on, but each of these numeric values was represented by completely different numerals. So in our own system the num…ber 538 is not the same as 835, but in the Egyptian system it could be identical - because it was written with the signs for 5x100, 3x10 and 8x1 and it would mean the same if written in reverse (8 units, 3 tens and 5 hundreds). This explains why no zero was required - simply leaving out one kind of numeric sign meant the absence of that particular value. (MORE)
The answer depends on what information you have. Given only one number, all that can be said is that the base is larger than the largest digit appearing in the number. Equations will not help if there are no "carries". For example, For example, 10 + 12 = 22 is true in any base greater than or equa…l to 3. [In base 3, it is 3+5=8, in base 4, it is 4+6=10, in base 500 it is 500+502=1002, in base e (= 2.7183...) it is 2.7183+4.7183 =7.4366 (approx).] (MORE)
The metric system is based on 10 because we operate in base 10. This means that units can be changed by simply moving the decimal point, as 1 m = .001 km = 100 cm. This also allows scientific notation to be used easily, as you simply need to change the exponent. For example, 6.2 * 10 23 mm = 6.2 * …10 20 m. (MORE)
The numbers that we use today are based on the Hindu-Arabic numeral system whose numerals are: 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 and 9
The metric prefixes are powers of 10; most commonly, powers of 1000 (10 3 ) are used, that is, the power of 10 is a multiple of 3. For example, 10 3 = kilo, 10 6 = mega, 10 -3 = milli, etc.
Answer #2: The base of the binary number system is 2 . ===== Answer #1: 1's and 0's my friend. Binary = bi = 2 numbers 1 0 1 = +5v charge on a hard drive 0 = 0 charge So your hard drive is primarily broken down into positive 5 voltcharges and spaces with no charge or a slight negativ…e charge,which the computer reads as ones and zeros. these 1's and 0's are then turned in to a hexidecimal system whichis then turned into Ascii test, which is the readable text you seehere: Ascii text = H E L L O Hex = 656C6C6F Binary = 01101000 01100101 01101100 01101100 01101111 Binary numbers as the name suggest uses only two digits which are 0and 1. combination of 0's and 1's are used for representing othernumbers. this system is used to communicate with machine so machineunderstandable language is known as machine language.

For example, the decimal system we commonly use uses base ten. This means that each position (place-value) is worth ten times more than the position to the right of it. It also means that ten different digits are needed (0-9).
In math, the Sumerians devised a number system based on 60 using combination's of 6 and 10 for practical solutions. In astronomy, the Sumerians made use of units of 60 and charted the constellations. They based their calendar on twelve lunar months and brought it into harmony with the solar year by …adding an extra month from time to time. (MORE)
Probably because there are 10 digits (8 fingers and 2 thumbs) in total on our hands - the most likely reason we use a place value system based on the number 10. Metric just uses the place value system of every day use which most [Westerners] learn from a very early age. . If we used a sexagesi…mal system (based on the number 60) like the Babylonians did (and we still do in expressing time in hours:minutes:seconds, and angles in degrees minutes' seconds'') it would make for some much easier maths as 60 has many more factors than 10 (12 as opposed to 4) in particular the factors 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 , 6, except for the need for 60 different symbols for each digit. The old UK pound predecimalisation used to have 12 pence (12d) in one shilling, 5 shillings in one crown (making one crown 60d) and 20 shillings in one pound (making 1 pound 240d); 1 old penny used to weight 1 / 240 lb = 1 pennyweight (1 dwt) so that Â£1 in pennies used to weigh 1 lb (= 240 dwt).

10. I think. If this is a homework question, don't put this as your answer. I'm pretty sure this is right though.
The Sumerian system was based on a root of six. It is believed that the Sumerian civilization is the most ancient and their system of counting the very first. The Sumerian system can still be seen in our use of the foot (12 inches = 2 x 6) and yard (36 inches = 6 x 6) and in our sexagesimal measurem…ent of time (60 seconds, 60 minuets, 24 hours = 4 x 6).

The Babylonians had not discovered fractions and 60 is a fairly low number which can be factorised by many numbers which made it useful.
Because if you have a bag with 60 candies in it, you can split them up equally among 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 12, 15, 20, 30, or 60 people, without ever cutting up one of them. (The candies, that is, not the people.)
All number systems use a figure for some kind to stand for a number. The numerals 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 are the symbols for base 10, but base 2 uses only 0 and 1. Base 16 uses 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9, A(for 10), B(for 11), C(for 12), D(for 13), E(for 14), and F(for 15) that makes 16 symbols to be consider…ed as single digits for 16 numbers (0 thru 15). Each base must have that number of symbols for their individual numbers from 0 to one less than the base. Base 60 will need 60 such symbols, I've never seen them. (MORE)
No this would not work. In a base number system, each place value position is a multiple of the previous one by a factor of the base [ for example: 100, 10, 1, 0.1, etc. in the decimal or 10 system]. If there was a one-base system, then each place value would be multiplied (or divided by) one: [1, …1, 1, 1, ....]. Also, in a number system: there are the same number of digits as the base [in base 10, we have 0-9 which is ten digits]. The highest digit is one less than the base. So for base one you would have 1 digit, which would be 0. (MORE)
Most likely, early humans, as we have 10 fingers so it is easiest to count in tens.
No. For any base, n, you use the digits 0 to (n-1) for all numbers within that system. If, as in the case of the hexadecimal system (base 16), 0-9 are not sufficient to take you to n-1, you "borrow" some letters of the alphabet. In this case A ,B, C, D, E and F.
The Mayan number system was vigesimal, meaning that it was based on the number 20.
Because if it were not, then the name of the system would have to be changed.
The whole metric system is counted in base 10, that is it uses the digits; 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. As we use base ten to count almost everything in the universe, it makes the calculations much simpler.
The base of our number system is 10. However there are mathematical methods of converting bases to 2 , 5 ...e.t.c.

There can be. Commas are used to break up long strings of numbers and a comma or space can be used for this purpose in any base. A word of warning, though. In some European countries, the decimal "point" is a comma and the thousand separator is a point. The role of the comma and the point are swapp…ed around. (MORE)
Base ten has been around for a very long time. Man has used fingers to count since the dawn of time, which is base ten. If you mean when did the ten digits (0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9) get more or less formalized, then the credit probably goes to Indian mathematicians as zero was the last of those digits… to be "recognized". By the 9th century AD rules for handling zero were well established. In 498 AD, Indian mathematician and astronomer Aryabhata stated that "sthÄnÄt sthÄnaá¹ daÅaguÅaá¹ syÄt" (literally, "place to place in ten times in value"), i.e. "from place to place each is ten times the preceding" which is the origin of the modern decimal-based place value notation.

Probably it was the ancient Babylonians whose number base was 60 or maybe the ancient Mayans whose number base was 20
Why not? Actually, it is believed that since humans have both ten fingers and ten toes this led to the origin of the commonly used base 10 system. Had we been born with 12, say, it is probable that we would now be working in base 12!
It depends on what system and what number. For example, if it was14, it would be 14 in base ten, 1100 in binary (or base 2), E inhex (base 16) and 16 in octo (base 8) P.S: I'm a 11 year old kid!
In the decimal system, each place-value is ten times the place-value to its right. In other similar systems, some other factor is used - it must be an integer that is greater or equal to 2. This factor is called the base.
