3. TEST

The system behind numerals in Danshali is relatively simple, and yet deserves an explanation.

Danshali uses base 12.

The 12 base numerals are:

1- nu é

2- thore re

3- son son

4- zeto zeû

5- fun fun

6- seho seho

7- 'ure 'Tre

8- oxen 6xÀn

9- jun jun

10 (A in base 12)- yuke yuke

11(B in base 12)- meco meà

12 (10 in base 12)- sen sen

For numbers between 12 and 144, simply join the number 12 with the number it is being multiplied by. For example:

34(base 10)=2A(base 12)=thoresen yuke resen yuke

75(base 10)=63(base 12)=sehosen son sehosen son

109(base 10)=91(base 12)=junsen nu junsen é

When does this multiplication stop, and when does a new number appear? The Danshali numbering system is designed in a way that there is only a new number every time that 2 previous number would have to repeat themselves. For example, upon reaching 144(100 in base 12), while using the system described above, one would have to multiply 12*12, meaning the resulting number would be "sensen". This, however, cannot happen. As such 144 is its own number. However, upon reaching 1728(1000 in base 12) a new number wouldn't be needed, as you could reach it by multiplying 12*144 (10*100 in base 12).

As such, the 3 next necessary numbers would be:

144 (100 in base 12)- reqo reqo

20,736 (10k in base 12)- taçi taƣ

429,981,696 (100m in base 12)- binbu

1,200(base 10)=840(base 12)=oxenreqo zetosen 6xÀnreqo zeûsen

The dates section is a wip and will be added at a later date.
