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.
The symbols for the digits in common use around the globe today are called Arabic numerals by Europeans and Indian numerals by Arabs, the two groups' terms both referring to the culture from which they learned the system.

 Roman numerals Summary
The Roman numeral system for representing numbers was developed around 500 B.C. As the Romans conquered much of the world that was known to them, their numeral system spread throughout Europe, where Roman numerals remained the primary manner for representing numbers for centuries.
Because the largest numeral used by the Romans was M, or 1000, it proved impractical to write extremely large numbers, such as 1,000,000, as a string of 1000 Ms.
Roman numerals are commonly used today in numbered lists (in outline format), clockfaces, pages preceding the main body of a book, chord triads in music analysis, the numbering of movie sequels, book publication dates, successive rulers with identical names, and the numbering of some sport events, such as the Olympic Games or the Super Bowls.

 Caraculiambro. Headwords: Ten and Hundred
The numeral ‘20’ was originally a compound involving *ui- (a rather obscure element apparently meaning ‘two’ and thought by some to be a reduced form of *dui-) and the dual of a neuter noun meaning ‘decad, a group of ten’, which in turn was derived from *dek@nt by giving it a different stress pattern: *dkont-/*dk@nt-.
As an alternative, the composition form of a numeral (*tri-, *kwetu@r-, *penkwe-...) could be juxtaposed with the uninflected *(d)kont, forming a compound rather than a phrase.
The numerals in question have been restructured in the daughter languages so commonly that no direct reflexes of their original form can be found.
