### Numeration Systems

The various ways of symbolizing and working with the counting numbers are called numeration systems. The symbols of a numeration system are called numerals.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Counting by Tallying

Tally sticks and tally marks have been used for a long time. Each mark represents one item. For example, eight items are tallied by writing the following:

### Counting by Grouping

Counting by grouping allows for less repetition of symbols and makes numerals easier to interpret. The size of the group is called the base (usually ten) of the number system.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Ancient Egyptian Numeration – Simple Grouping

The ancient Egyptian system is an example of a simplegrouping system. It uses ten as its base and the various symbols are shown on the next slide.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Ancient Egyptian Numeration

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Egyptian Numeral

Write the number below in our system.

Solution

2 (100,000) = 200,000

3 (1,000) = 3,000

1 (100) = 100

4 (10) = 40

5 (1) = 5

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Ancient Roman Numeration

The ancient Roman method of counting is a modified grouping system. It uses ten as its base, but also has symbols for 5, 50, and 500.

The Roman system also has a subtractive feature which allows a number to be written using subtraction.

A smaller-valued symbol placed immediately to the left of the larger value indicated subtraction.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Ancient Roman Numeration

The ancient Roman numeration system also has a multiplicative feature to allow for bigger numbers to be written.

A bar over a number means multiply the number by 1000.

A double bar over the number means multiply by 10002 or 1,000,000.

### Ancient Roman Numeration

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Roman Numeral

Write the number below in our system.

MCMXLVII

Solution

M= 1000

CM= -100 + 1000

XL = -10 + 50

V= 5

I= 1

I= 1

1000 + 900 + 40 + 5 + 1 + 1= 1947

### Traditional Chinese Numeration – Multiplicative Grouping

A multiplicative grouping system involves pairs of symbols, each pair containing a multiplier and then a power of the base. The symbols for a Chinese version are shown on the next slide.

### More Historical Numeration Systems

• Basics of Positional Numeration

• Hindu-Arabic Numeration

• Babylonian Numeration

• Mayan Numeration

• Greek Numeration

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Positional Numeration

A positional system is one where the various powers of the base require no separate symbols. The power associated with each multiplier can be understood by the position that the multiplier occupies in the numeral.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Positional Numeration

In a positional numeral, each symbol (called a

digit) conveys two things:

1.Face value – the inherent value of the symbol.

2.Place value – the power of the base which is associated with the position that the digit occupies in the numeral.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Positional Numeration

To work successfully, a positional system must have a symbol for zero to serve as a placeholder in case one or more powers of the base is not needed.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Hindu-Arabic Numeration – Positional

One such system that uses positional form is our system, the Hindu-Arabic system.

The place values in a Hindu-Arabic numeral, from right to left, are 1, 10, 100, 1000, and so on. The three 4s in the number 45,414 all have the same face value but different place values.

### Babylonian Numeration

The ancient Babylonians used a modified base 60 numeration system.

The digits in a base 60 system represent the number of 1s, the number of 60s, the number of 3600s, and so on.

The Babylonians used only two symbols to create all the numbers between 1 and 59.

▼ = 1 and ‹ =10

### Example: Babylonian Numeral

### Mayan Numeration

The ancient Mayans used a base 20 numeration system, but with a twist.

Normally the place values in a base 20 system would be 1s, 20s, 400s, 8000s, etc. Instead, the Mayans used 360s as their third place value.

Mayan numerals are written from top to bottom.

### Greek Numeration

The classical Greeks used a ciphered counting system.

They had 27 individual symbols for numbers, based on the 24 letters of the Greek alphabet, with 3 Phoenician letters added.

The Greek number symbols are shown on the next slide.

### Arithmetic in the Hindu-Arabic System

• Expanded Form

• Historical Calculation Devices

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Expanded Form

By using exponents, numbers can be written in expanded form in which the value of the digit in each position is made clear.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Expanded Form

Write the number 23,671 in expanded form.

Solution

### Distributive Property

For example,

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Expanded Form

Use expanded notation to add 34 and 45.

Solution

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Decimal System

Because our numeration system is based on powers of ten, it is called the decimal system, from the Latin word decem, meaning ten.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Historical Calculation Devices

One of the oldest devices used in calculations is the abacus. It has a series of rods with sliding beads and a dividing bar. The abacus is pictured on the next slide.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Abacus

Reading from right to left, the rods have values of 1, 10, 100, 1000, and so on. The bead above the bar has five times the value of those below. Beads moved towards the bar are in “active” position.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Abacus

Which number is shown below?

Solution

1000 + (500 + 200) + 0 + (5 + 1) = 1706

### Lattice Method

The Lattice Method was an early form of a paper-and-pencil method of calculation. This method arranged products of single digits into a diagonalized lattice.

The method is shown in the next example.

### Example: Lattice Method

### Nines Complement

• Used for subtracting

• We first agree that the nines complement of a digit n is 9 – n. For example, the nines complement of 0 is 9, of 1 is 8, of 2 is 7, etc.

• Step 1 – Align the digits as in a standard subtraction problem.

• Step 2 – Add leading zeros, if necessary, in the subtrahend so that both numbers have the same number of digits.

• Step 3 – Replace each digit in the subtrahend with its nines complement, and then add.

• Step 4 – Finally, delete the leading digit (1), and add 1 to the remaining part of the sum.

### Example: Nines Complement Method

Use the nines complement method to subtract 2803 – 647.

### Section 4-4

• Conversion Between Number Bases

### Conversion Between Number Bases

• General Base Conversions

• Computer Mathematics

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### General Base Conversions

We consider bases other than ten. Bases other than ten will have a spelled-out subscript as in the numeral 54eight. When a number appears without a subscript assume it is base ten. Note that 54eight is read “five four base eight.” Do not read it as “fifty-four.”

### Powers of Alternative Bases

### Example: Converting Bases

Convert 2134five to decimal form.

Solution

2134five

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Calculator Shortcut for Base Conversion

To convert from another base to decimal form: Start with the first digit on the left and multiply by the base. Then add the next digit, multiply again by the base, and so on. The last step is to add the last digit on the right. Do not multiply it by the base.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Calendar Shortcut

Use the calculator shortcut to convert 432134five to decimal form. (Can put the formula below directly into Excel!)

Solution

432134five

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Converting Bases

Convert 7508 to base seven.

Remainder

Solution

Divide by 7, then divide the resulting quotient by 7, until a quotient of 0 results.

From the remainders (bottom to top) we get the answer:

7508 = 30614seven

### Converting Between Two Bases Other Than Ten

Many people feel the most comfortable handling conversions between arbitrary bases (where neither is ten) by going from the given base to base ten and then to the desired base.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Computer Mathematics

There are three alternative base systems that are most useful in computer applications. These are binary (base two), octal (base eight), and hexadecimal (base sixteen) systems.

Computers and handheld calculators use the binary system.

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Convert Binary to Decimal

Convert 111001two to decimal form.

Solution

111001two

2012 Pearson Education, Inc.

### Example: Convert Hexadecimal to Binary

Convert 8B4Fsixteen to binary form.

Solution

Each hexadecimal digit yields a 4-digit binary equivalent.

8 B 4 Fsixteen

1000 1011 0100 1111two

Combine to get

8B4Fsixteen = 1000101101001111two.
