Because its table is easy . Multiplication is easy 1000000000*10=10000000000 :)

that is a result of choosing ten as the base for our number system, @sami-21

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

surly base, two, or six or thirty-six or something nice would be better then ten
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think 0 is a better number.
anonymous
  • anonymous
zero doesn't make sense without one
UnkleRhaukus
  • UnkleRhaukus
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.

@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.

So the first 4 perfect numbers ar 6, 28, 496 and 8128. 3, 7, 10 and 12 are not perfect numbers.
