Date: 06/07/99 at 12:37:39 From: Doctor Peterson Subject: Re: Denary Hi, Keith. According to my dictionary, denary means 1. Tenfold 2. Divided or counted by tens; decimal It comes from the Latin word "denarius," which was a coin equal in value to ten "asses." I'll let you come up with the examples, if two definitions aren't enough. - Doctor Peterson, The Math Forum http://mathforum.org/dr.math/ |
