The base 12 computer was invented long ago.  You have one on the end of your arm.

"base 12 originates from an ancient method of finger counting, first documented in Babylon, but probably much older. No, they didn't have more fingers back then. If you examine your fingers, you will see that each finger is divided into three joints. Using your thumb as a pointer, and each joint of each finger as a counter, you can count to 12 on one hand. Using the other hand to accumulate, and you easily see why numbers like 60, 360, and 144 come up so often in measurement systems."

I wonder how 2/3 would be stored in THAT computer?

Cutting out a piece of finger?

How precise you must be doing this cutting?

Dearest Moderator's,

How can I make it so I'm no longer "watching" (unsubscribe) this topic?   We've gone from "Banker's Rounding" to actual "Digital Truncation"

Quite easily actually. Using your thumb, you count just like they did, stopping after completing the second joint on all four fingers. Let us know what else we can help you with.

I hope you have BR function running on that computer?

Why would I need Banker's Rounding to handle the exact numeric ".8"?

That's the ticket... Thanks, Lynn.

Well, you can either read all 37 pages, or if you'd rather, here is one of the recaps we've had in the thread so far.

Man, quit spamming and get a real job.  Just because it's spam, I wouldn't click on your link nor use your services just because you are a spammer (links removed from my reply).  What makes any of us think you have an ethical bone in your body?
