What Are Number Digits?


Numeric Digits

Number Digits (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9) can be used to represent any number; these symbols are the decimal number system. When only one number is used (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9) we have a single-digit or a one digit number. A digit is a one number symbol.

The following are examples of two-digit numbers: 10, 11, 12, ... 99.

You see that two digit symbols are put together to represent a larger number than any one digit number. Three digit numbers such as 135 is greater than any two digit number such as 99. The idea continues where four digit numbers are greater than a three digit numbers; for example 1357 is greater than 135. This idea goes as high as you want.
