Why Numbers like : 1 is One & 2 is Two Have you ever thought why …….. 1 means "one", and 2 means "two"? The roman numerals are easy to understand but what was the logic behind the phonecian numbers? It’s all about angles ! It’s the number of angles. If one writes the numbers down (see below) on a piece of paper in their older forms, one quickly sees why. I have marked the angles with "o"s. No 1 has one angle.No 2 has two angles. No 3 has three angles. etc. and "O" has no angles Advertisements Share this:RedditGooglePinterestTumblrLike this:Like Loading...
