Logic of numbers

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
