The Concept of Base 10 will not translate easily into lessons that teachers in
Kindergarten can teach in classrooms. We need to shift our focus from this
combination, Base 10, which translates into numbers with exponents, e.g. 100 as
10 to the power of 2, into Place Value. We should use as predicate in the
discussion, even in writing textbooks, that in the decimal system and in the
decimal numerals 1234567890, there is no symbol for ten like X in Roman
Numeration. That ten, any ten regroup as 1: IIII/IIII/, ten ones regroup as 1
Ten under the Ten's Place in the repeating Hundred, Ten One (HTO) Places; Ten
tens as 1 Hundred; Ten hundred as 1 Thousand.
So that in 1,111,110.11 any 1 is ten of the one to its right, decimal fractions
included; while 0 is Placeholder for an empty One's Place. (c).
