# Elasin Numbers

## You Can Count In Elasin!

*Fruthuatu ledotavu elasinsa!**

The Elasin numerical system is base 14, which is quite a foreign concept when compared with our own base 10 system. For example, the base 10 number system uses the following single digit integers:

0-1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9

To this set, Elasin would add:

!-@-#-$

*NOTE:These are NOT the actual numbers in Elasin! The actual written symbols will be discussed later. For now we will use !, @, #, $ to explain the system.*

Therefore, the total digits would look something like this:

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 ! @ # $

Our 14 then would appear as:

10

With 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, and 27 looking like:

10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 1! 1@ 1# 1$

And then 28 would be...?

Right, 20 (in Elasin)

Below, we will use the !, @, #, and $ to simulate Elasin. The Elasin zero is *hafni*, which is also the word for "empty." Here are the names of the numbers:

1000 in Elasin is *telas* and would be (in base 10) 2,744.

Now, let's see how this works:

When combining or reading numbers, the conjunction *li* is used:

So, base 10 "15" in Elasin is...*11 - mata li dofa*.

Base 10 "200" in Elasin is...*104 - matai nano*.

Base 10 "1964" in Elasin is...*!04 - potai nano*.

Note that when combining Elasin "100's," *li* is not used.

A nice web site for converting between Base 10 and Base 14 is Convert Any Radix Base Number

*Literally: "It is possible, your counting using Elasin!"
