The Egyptian numeral system was additive (position does not matter) and decimal (base 10).

To write a number, the Egyptians had available 7 signs / digits all having a value of a power of 10 which had to be repeated as many times as necessary:

πΊ | 1 |
---|---|

π | 10 |

π’ | 100 |

πΌ | 1000 |

π | 10000 |

π | 100000 |

π¨ | 1000000 |

Use the form at the top of this page to convert an **Egyptian number**.

__Example:__ `123` is written π’ππΊπΊπΊ

The number zero does not exist in this system, the absence of a symbol indicates that there is 0.

__Example:__ `2001` is written πΌπΌπΊ

Identify each Egyptian symbol and add their values in Hindu-Arabic numerals, the sum obtained is the result of the conversion.

__Example:__ π’π’πΊπΊπΊ sis written with 2 times π’ that is the symbol for the value 100 and 3 times πΊ that is the symbol for the value 1. Therefore the sum is $ 2 \times 100 + 3 \times 1 = 203 $

In Egypt, the symbols of the figures are hieroglyphics representing:

πΊ | 1 | stroke/bar/stick |

π | 10 | hobble/yoke/bridge |

π’ | 100 | rope/spiral |

πΌ | 1000 | water-lily/lotus |

π | 10000 | finger |

π | 100000 | tadpole |

π¨ | 1000000 | Heh/God |
