    Why 1 means "one" & 2 means "two" ??

    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 phonecian numbers?




    It'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"s.

    No 1 has one angle.
    No 2 has two angles.
    No 3 has three angles.
    etc.

    and "O" has no angles
