Why Numbers like : 1 is One & 2 is two.?????????

have you ever thought why ........

1 means "one", and 2 means "two"?

The roman numerals are easy to understand but what was

the logic behind the Phoenician numbers?

It's all about angles !

It's the number of angles. If one writes the numbers down (see below) on a piece of paper in their older forms, one quickly sees why. I have marked the angles with "o"s.

No 1 has one angle.

No 2 has two angles.

No 3 has three angles.

etc.

and "O" has no angles
