Only when you are counting in Base 4. When counting in Base 10, 2 + 2 would equal 4.

A counting base of ten is the system of counting we are most accustomed to. Numbers 0-9, 10-19, 20-29, etc.other common counting bases include 2 and 16(Binary and hexadecimal respectively).

10 is so important because we use a base-10 counting system.

All whole numbers from 1 to 14

The Babylonians used 60 as the base for their counting.

When counting in base 4, perhaps.

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 10 (= 8 in base 10) 11 (= 9 in base 10) 12 (= 10 in base 10)

That's called 'decimal'.

The base is the number at which you move from one place value to the next. In normal counting, we count in units up to 10, at which point we count in tens and units up to 100 (10x10) at which point we count in hundreds, tens and units up until 1,000 (10x10x10) and so on. Thus normal counting is called base 10. In base 4, say, you would count in units until you got to 4, then move into counting in 4s and units until you got to 16 (4x4) and then move into counting in 16s 4s and units. Base 4 counting would look like this: 1, 2, 3, 10, 11, 12, 13, 20, 21, 22, 23, 30, 31, 32, 33, 100, 101, 102, 103, 110... and so on 21 in base 4 would equal 9 in base 10. 112 in base 4 would equal 22 in base 10.

10 is so important because we use a base-10 counting system.

They use it because they have 10 fingers and 10 toes. Makes counting much easier.

Base 10 means that when counting upwards, when a digit goes to ten it creates a new digit to the left.Examples of base 10 usage:080910or098099100If you were dealing with base 2 (a/k/a "binary"), when counting upwards, when a digit goes to 2 it creates a new digit to the left.Examples of base 2 usage:000110or010011100If you were dealing with base 16 (a/k/a "hexidecimal"), when counting upwards, when a digit goes to 16 it creates a new digit to the left.Examples of base 16 usage:08090A0B0C0D0E0F10or0FC0FD0FE0FF100
