### 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:

 πΊ 1 10 100 1000 10000 100000 1000000

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

Example: 123 is written π’π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 πΌπΌπΊ

### How to convert an Egyptian number into Arabic numerals?

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

Example: π’π’πΊπΊπΊ sis written with 2 times π’ that is the symbol for the value 100 and 3 times πΊ that is the symbol for the value 1. Therefore the sum is $2 \times 100 + 3 \times 1 = 203$
