decimal

Decimal is a term that describes the base-10 number system, probably the most commonly used number system. The decimal number system consists of ten single- digit numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. The number after 9 is 10. The number after 19 is 20 and so forth. Additional powers of 10 require the addition of another positional digit.

In computing, the binary , octal , or hexadecimal number system may be used instead of the decimal system. All these schemes have a number of digits that is a power of 2. This is an advantage in systems that use high and low digital states.
