Have You ever thought why 1 is 'one' and 2 is 'two' .... and so on...?
Well here it is...
The numbers we all use (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) are known as Arabicifans ms,sans-serif][b]" numbers to distinguish them from the iRoman Numerals[/b][/fontsans ms,sans-serif][b]" (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, etc). Actually the Arabs popularized these numbers but they were originally used by the early Phoenician traders to count and keep track of their trading accounts]
Have you ever thought why[/b ........ 1 means "one", and 2 means "two"? The roman numerals are easy to understand but what was bbehind the Phoenician numbersIt's all about angles !It's the number of angles. If one writes the numbers down (see below) on a piece of paper in their older forms, one quickly sees why. I have marked the angles with "o"s1 has one angle. No 2 has two angles. No 3 has three angles. and "O" has no angles
Interesting, isn't it? ancient Phoenician manuscript explains this, and I thought it to be fascinating
