people see a lot of things in their every day lives, but how do they quantify the AMOUNT of things they see?

the 'number', you may call it.

well it's actually really easy; they use the base 10 decimal system.

In base 10, there are 10 digits that can form any number of numbers.

0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9

you maybe be wondering why "10" isn't a number on there, if you're already familiar with numbers. It is named base 10 after all. Well, to understand that, you need to know how to count, and what the individual numbers are.

For example, let's use cave story mods to count. If there are 'zero' (0) cave story mods on any given forum, that means there aren't any cave story mods!

If there is 'one' (1) cave story mod (the "s" is omitted to be

If there are 'two' (2) cave story mods (the "s" is back again), that means there is double the number of one, or two. Here is a visual representation.

As you can see, the number increments by the same value as "1", for every additional number.

but you may be wondering why the number of mods on the label four (4), seems to be only equal to two (2).

this is because the second "mod" there is a '

'Lancer Story' is equal to one (1) cave story mod, while 'The Cut Cola Microtrilogy' is equal to three (3). So if you add the two together, they become four (4).

currently i am not smart enough to create a visual representation of this that makes any sense, so you must think abstractly. but i know you can do it.

the number ten (10) is not on the list of numbers, because it is too big to be quantified with a single digit, so two are used (but not added together). 10 is equal to 5 + (plus, meaning, add the two numbers together) 5.

that is all.

1. 32 + 2

2. 1 + 2

3. you see a train. you see another train. you see another train. how many trains?

4. 2 x 2

5. y=4x+12, solve for both y and x.
