Figure I'd bring this down from the e-mails, as its not on the site.

(directly: I want learn numbers, but numbers are incomplete. know what I:) <- early attempts

Na'vi number system is octal Based on 8.

Known numbers:

One - 'aw

Two - mune

Three - ??

Four - tsíng

Five - ??

Six - ??

Seven - kinä

Eight - ??

from there, thinking about numbers octally (base

can be pretty confusing at first, but you can break it down pretty simply: observe the following

Octal: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Decimal: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

not different at all! here's where it gets confusing

Octal: 10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17

Decimal:8, 9,10,11,12,13,14,15

remember, 8 is essentially 0 in an octal system, and the new digit indicates how many of the base numbers are there. continuing on:

Octal: 20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27

Decimal:16,17,18,19,20,21,22,23

and you can go up and up. Here's a quick trick to quick number conversions:

For each 2nd digit increment, subtract an additional 2 from the octal number to get the decimal number.

Example:

Octal number is 25

since its in the twenties, multiply the number 2 by 2 again, and subtract the resulting 4 from the octal number:

25-(2x2) = ?

25-4

21 << decimal number

Example 2:

Octal number is: 47

47-(4x2) = ?

47-8

39 << decimal number

so quite simply, if the octal number is in the

10s, minus 2 from the number to get decimal equivalent

20s, minus 4 from the number to get decimal equivalent

30s, minus 6 from the number to get decimal equivalent

40s, minus 8 from the number to get decimal equivalent

50s, minus 10 from the number to get decimal equivalent

60s, minus 12 from the number to get decimal equivalent

and up and up and up.

-----------------

Numerical confusion:

past the first seven numbers, only two other numbers are known:

Sixteen, or vofu (octal: 20)

Thirty Two, or Tsìvol (octal: 40)

The question then is...

if o20 is vofu

is o21 vofu'aw? 'aw-vofu? 'awvofu?

is o22 vofumune? mune-vofu? munevofu?

and so fourth.

(forgot to mention, the o before the number indicates that its an octal, or na'vi number)

so again, for reference, here are the current known numbers:

One - 'aw

Two - mune

Three - ??

Four - tsíng

Five - ??

Six - ??

Seven - kinä

Eight - ??

o10 - ??

o20 - vofu

o30 - ??

o40 - tsìvol

o50 - ??

o60 - ??

o70 - ??

o100 - ??
