# Word-Numeral Decimal System

It was the ancient Bharatbhoomi that gave us the ingenious methods of expressing all the numbers by means of 10 symbols (decimal systems). The highest prefix used for raising 10 to the power in today's mathematics is "D" for 10^{30} (for Greek Deca). While as early as 100 BC Hindu mathematicians had exact names for figures up to 10^{53}.

how would you write 2008 in sanskrit numbers??please answer

ReplyOptionsaṣṭottara dvisahasra, in Sanskrit words, meaning eight more than two thousand.

If you are talking numerals, २००८, remembering that the zero-based place-value notation originated in ancient India.

ReplyOptionsActually, you can also simply say aṣṭAdvisahasra (eight 2 thousand) or dvisahasrAṣṭa (2 thousand eight):

ReplyOptionsThanks for this wonderful site which I discovered quite accidentally today. I have shared this on my Facebook page under the group which I have created which is called Sanskrit Lovers etc. I am curious if there is any research regarding the reason for the conception of such mind bogglingly huge numbers as 10 raised to the power 53. Avogadro number of chemistry and physics only takes us to 10 to the power 24. And Brahma's lifetime, based on Hindu cosmology is only 311 trillion and 40 billion years.

ReplyOptionsGreat !!

We had knowledge of there numbers upto that extent in those days.

Proud of our "Dharma". Everything have a reason in our Dharma.

I guess our ancients have more knowledge than us on those days.

Proud of Sanatna Dharmi!!

ReplyOptionsAppreciate the sanskrit lesson. Maybe I can share some math lesson. There are much larger numbers in math today.

Eg googol, googolplex, Graham's number, and other notations and other large named numbers.

ReplyOptionsWhat is name for 0.000000000000001

ReplyOptionsVery knowledgeable with deep insight. Must be taught in our schools.
