Spoolofwhool Stone Shaman Posted August 27, 2016 Report Share So I guess I'm dumb, but how you you write 35? The symbol for three over the symbol for five? Quote Link to comment

It would be 5 over 3. You always start at the bottom, and you always start with the highest order of magnitude available. Think powers of 10: 30 is 3x10^1 (30) + 5x10^0 (5). So you write 30 on the bottom, 5 on top. This being said, I don't see how the 1173 example would be correct. The vertical line on the bottom is 1000 (which is fine), but the two red ones immediately above it would be 900, I think, not 100 (as suggested). The green and blue above that correctly correspond to 7 and 3, so it's the red I don't understand. Maybe @Harakeke can help us out. Quote Link to comment

Also, I don't understand why 10 and 20 are just horizontal lines. Is there a reason why? Quote Link to comment
