In fact it is worth noting that although the system is base 20 it only has three number symbols (perhaps the unit symbol arising from a pebble and the line symbol from a stick used in counting).
Also since the Mayan numbers were not a true positional base 20 system, it fails to have the nice mathematical properties that we expect of a positional system.

 Gavyn Davies does the maths | World news | The Guardian
It is the story of how a simple statistical formula successfully estimated the number of tanks the enemy was producing, at a time when this could not be directly observed by the allied spy network.
One solution was to ask intelligence to guess the number by secretly observing the output of German factories, or by trying to count tanks on the battlefield.
The basic idea was that the highest serial number among the captured tanks could be used to calculate the overall total.

 BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Human gene number slashed
When the draft human genome was published in 2000, and researchers estimated it contained between 30,000 and 40,000 genes, many people were surprised that something as complex as the human body could be built from such a modest number of tools.
Now the gene number has been revised downwards even further, and scientists suspect that the key to complexity lies not in the genes, but in the gaps between them.
By matching the genes on the pufferfish chromosomes to related genes on human chromosomes, the authors were able to peer into the genome of our shared ancestor - a primitive bony fish that lived hundreds of millions of years ago.
