why is ten a good number ?
because it's bigger than 9 and smaller than 11
Because we can count it out on our fingers :)
Is that the Only reason @Traxter?
some people have 11 or 12 fingers :X
Because its table is easy . Multiplication is easy 1000000000*10=10000000000 :)
because of the ten disciples
and also because of the ten little indians
that is a result of choosing ten as the base for our number system, @sami-21
and also because you can form words out of ten i.e. tenant
10 is a good number because it is the only combination of 2 natural numbers that have been useful in super computing
@lgbasallote this is a serious question,
It is really as simple as we have 10 fingers.

10 contains the binary code. 10
@lgbasallote I think you just wrote on my paper... lol
was that what you said? lol i thought you meant 2 and 5

10 is used to store the genome sequences
@UnkleRhaukus you're missing a finger

was that bird on steroid when it decided to work out?
|dw:1345797060594:dw|
that bird uses 1 dominant wing to fly
Because 10 is 01 backwards? I don't know... There are so many reasons why 10 is a good number (they can be multiplied and divided by with ease, they only have three letters in their spelling, it's easy to remember, it's the very first two digit number when counting from one onwards, etc... )
Don't be silly. Turkeys can't fly
Because it is so easy to multiply, divide, subtract or add with 10 ;) @UnkleRhaukus
ostrich and penguins can't.
surly base, two, or six or thirty-six or something nice would be better then ten
I think 0 is a better number.
zero doesn't make sense without one
that would make maths easier
Base 8 would also be a good system as 8=2^3, so binary would be a lot easier if we used a base 8 system.
I'd like to think 1 and 0 are wed locked
Fight to the death! Will the swan or turkey win?
neither looked like a swan nor turkey... how many fingers does it take to _______
@Traxter octal is sometimes used instead of hexadecimal. But binary is still the basis.
Of the four "perfect numbers" (3,7,10,12) the symbolism of ten - ordinal perfection is the only perfection that natural humans can even approach. While man's perfection falls far short of Gods perfection in all things, we can strive and achieve some measure of success with ordinal perfection. We can form a perfect cube, a perfect triangle, and so on. And even if we fall short of perfection in the actuality of these things the conceptual, or mathematical perfection of such is attainable for us. We cannot aspire to divine perfection on our own. We cannot aspire to spiritual perfection on our own. We cannot attain governmental perfection without God. Thus ordinal perfection, as symbolized by the number ten stands out as linked with the natural, the carnal (of the flesh, as our ten fingers literally are) and the world, and yet still perfect.
that three letter word (not ten) is just a conversation stopper...
@DLS what is perfect about ten , all i can see is we have ten fingers,
A perfect number is a positive integer which is equal to the sum of its divisors.
we have 8 fingers indeed sire.
So the first 4 perfect numbers ar 6, 28, 496 and 8128. 3, 7, 10 and 12 are not perfect numbers.
I am glad we are continuing... I was going to suggest that to break the spell http://openstudy.com/users/panlac01 read the quote about the three-letter word
if we choose a base that was a perfect number , that would makes sense to me , because it would make mathematics much easier , what properties does ten have?
|dw:1345798428478:dw|
property 1: it looks very simple
|dw:1345798526446:dw|
ten does not look simple
|dw:1345798618835:dw|
we can say the same thing about simple machines... they are not simple
i can think of any simple machine except the atwood machine
or maybe this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=md0TlSjIags counting machine
Because is the highest grade u can get in my country :D ♥I love 10♥ ^_^
please ask your question in the form of an equation
ah its clearer to me now
i had to simplify tho
\[6=1\times2\times 3\]
Who told uu 10 was that significant :)
there are ten digits
