over 5000 yr ago it was invented

The first people to use the decimal system and the number zero WERE NOT THE CHINESE! I am learning about this in school. The ancient Hindu's invented them during the Gupta Empire.

The decimal (base 10) number system can be found in many of the world's oldest civilizations and records including the Egyptians (3000 BC), Minoans (1600 BC), Bronze Age Greeces (1900 BC), Indian Brahmi (300 BC), Hittites (1600 BC), and Chinese (1700 BC). As such, either the system was invented multiple times or the inventor lost in pre-history.However, the first documented case of a decimal number system being invented is by Archimedes (287-212 BC) in his Sand Reckoner.

because americans are stupid

Both the Mayan and Roman number systems are non-positional, meaning the value of a symbol does not depend on its position within the number. Both systems use additive and subtractive principles to represent numbers. Both systems lack a symbol for zero, which can make calculations more challenging compared to the modern decimal system.
