  Syndex II A Synergetic Revisioning of Number Dynamics in Light of Ancient Metrology & Modern Cosmography
Number is considered so simple and mundane in nature that a popular assumption exists that there is nothing more to know about it that could really be of any valid significance.
The tapestry of number is literally woven with the four warps and four woofs, or octave, of the transpalindromic bridge between the fist and only two-digit pralindromic prime number 11 and the first, but not only, 3-digit prime number 101--primes that are known to proliferate palindromes in being multiplied by themselves.
Number 9 is the first odd number that is not a prime, because of the prior occurrence of number 3.

 Decimal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Decimal notation is the writing of numbers in the base-ten numeral system, which uses various symbols (called digits) for ten distinct values (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9) to represent numbers.
Ten is the number which is the count of fingers and thumbs on both hands (or toes on the feet).
Numbers with many digits before and/or after the decimal point may be divided into groups of three, starting from the decimal separator in both directions.

Numbers are just numbers to a lot of us, but there are two important properties of numbers you should know about.
If the base is 10 and the power is 2, that means multiply ten (the base) by itself twice (exponent is 2), meaning 10 X 10 which has the value 100.
The value of the right-most position of any number is the base raised to the power zero, the value of the position to the left of that is the base raised to the power one, the next position value is the base raised to the power two, and so on.

Once you have filled the "smallest" column with the highest number in your base, you must reset that small column to zero and add 1 to the column next to it on the left.
Note: you are actually doing the "converting" from base 2 to base 10 when you work out your column headings, because you are calculating 2 to the power of 0, to the power of 1, 2 to the power of 2 etc. in base 10.

 JTE Volume 10, Number 2
Atkinson (1993, 1994, 1995, 1997) provided evidence that these problems involved a significantly large number of pupils, even though many of them were able to complete their work and therefore appeared to be successful.
Although pupils in schools where "collaborative" strategies were used technically had the same number of hours for their projects, the evidence would suggest that the spread of this time over months rather than weeks allowed pupils access to this important maturation time.
An equal number of pupils at both extremes of the creativity spectrum were found to be unmotivated.

By a faction, I understand a number of citizens, whether amounting to a majority or a minority of the whole, who are united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adversed to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.
The two great points of difference between a democracy and a republic are: first, the delegation of the government, in the latter, to a small number of citizens elected by the rest; secondly, the greater number of citizens, and greater sphere of country, over which the latter may be extended.
The other point of difference is, the greater number of citizens and extent of territory which may be brought within the compass of republican than of democratic government; and it is this circumstance principally which renders factious combinations less to be dreaded in the former than in the latter.
