    It's believed we use base 10 systems because we have 10 digits on our hands. I was only pretending to be a creature with 8 digits on it's hand that counts 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,20 for random craziness fun.
    Now answer me this: How would something count with more than 10 numbers such as a hexadecimal system (note: they do not have the alphabet yet). Truly, I do not believe that they would use the symbols we use for any of the numbers. So taking that into account...

    .{{{...=& yes, a crazy statement eh fellow 16 fingered friends?

    I bet 16 fingered aliens get more accurately paid for their work.

    I'll only add that 1+1=3
    for unusually large cases of 1

    Any mathematician worth their salt would have your head for rounding issues. :P

    I'm going to go ahead and assume a species with 16 fingers wouldn't independently develop arabic numerals. So they'd count:

    1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f,10,11,12,13,14,15,16 ,17,18,19,1a,1b,1c,1d,,1e,1f,20

    But with *all* the numerals and letters replaced with their own 16 unique numbers.

    Well, since we talk about fingers... If you have trouble with basic multiplication, you can use your natural calculator ;)

    That was fun to watch.
    I just like when he says to use your pre-installed calculator and then laughs.

    I'm not good at math so I'm guessing it isn't.
    Unless it was 9.199... then I'm guessing it is.
