Cuneiform Numbers
--------- -------
The Babylonians used a base 60 number system. To
represent digits, they used symbols for 1 and 10 and
put them together as in a word, with the symbol for 10
first. We will use `v' for 1 and `<' for 10. The
Babylonians just used a space for 0; we will use `_'.
Given this notation, here are some Babylonian numbers
and their decimal equivalents:
