I do not know a lot about math theory, however I know that we (America) (I'm not sure if it's different for different parts of the world) use a base 10 number system. I also know that there have been other number systems invented. Can number systems other than base 10 be more beneficial for specific problems? If so, could you give an example? Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
