## Main Question or Discussion Point

The Egyptians were known for using base 6 while base 10 is more popular presumably because of the number of fingers we have. How much does the value of the base number of a mathematical system affect the underlying math used to describe physics? Would we still be able to arrive at the same conclusions if we say, used base 11 or base 23? Is it possible that physics would have progressed faster or even slower, if we had used a different number base than 10, or is it all interchangeable?
