Number Systems

The Different Systems

    A Number System is simply a counting system.  Each system has its own base, or number of unique symbols.  The Decimal (Base 10) has 10 such unique symbols (0-9).  Binary has 2 (0 and 1).  Any thing above Base 10 uses a numeric and letter combination (such as Hexadecimal's 0-9 A-F).

    Here is a (not complete) list of Number Systems (The "no-name" entries are commonly refered to as:  Base #):
