<![CDATA[Let us begin with a discussion of some of the important systems of number- representation that prevailed in India. Indians had separate names for the powers of ten, up to 17:- eka = 1, dasa = 10, sata = 100- 10^2 , sahasra = 1000- 10^3 ayuta= 10,000 = 10^4, niyuta (also called /aksa) = 100,000 = 10^5 prayuta = 1 ,QQQ,QQQ :106 , k0fi: 1 Q,QQQ,QQQ: 107 , arbuda = 1 QQ,QQQ,QQQ: 108 , abja (or vrinda) = 1,000,000,000 = 109 , kharva = 10,000,000,000 = 1010 , nikharva = 100,000,000,000 = 1011 , mahapadma = 1,000,000,000,000 = 1012 , sanku = 10,000,000,000,000 = 1 013 , jaladhi =1 00,000,000,000,000 = 1014, antya = 1,000,000,000,000,000 = 1 015,= madhya = 10,000,000,000,000,000 = 1016 , and parardha = 100,000,000,000,000,000 = 1017 [11; 16 & 61] Even though several systems for expressing numbers sprouted in ancient India, only a few gained any popularity and acceptability. The Bhuta Samkhya system and the Katapayadi system were two schemes which survived for a long time. Of these the Bhuta Samkhya system seems to be the older one. The Bhuta Samkhya System : Samkhya means number and Bhuta element, part, component, number etc. In this system, numbers are indicated by well-known objects or concepts having as many parts or components as the numbers they connote eg.: 0 is denoted by sunya (void), kha (sky), antariksa (atmosphere), puma (whole), randhra (hole) etc. 1 is denoted by sasi (moon). bhumi (earth), go (cow) etc. 2. is denoted by netra (eyes), bahu (hands), kama (ears), paksa (moon's waxing and waning periods) etc. - each of which has a pair of members.]]>
