[font:117e=Comic Sans MS][color:117e=#0000ff]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 "[i]Arabic[/i]" numbers to distinguish them from the "[i]Roman Numerals[/i]" (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... 1 means "one", and 2 means "two"? The roman numerals are easy to understand but what was the logic behind the Phoenician numbers?
It's all about angles !
It's the number of angles less than 180 degrees (cute angles).
No 1 has one angle.
No 2 has two angles.
No 3 has three angles.
and "O" has no angles!
Interesting, isn't it?
