Answers to Questions (FAQ)

How to write a number with Egyptian numerals?

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:

𓏺1
π“Ž†10
𓍒100
𓆼1000
π“‚­10000
𓆐100000
𓁨1000000

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

Example: 123 is written π“’π“Ž†π“Ίπ“Ίπ“Ί

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

Example: 2001 is written 𓆼𓆼𓏺
