Best Answer

The Chinese or Romans?

Certainly not the Romans.

The concept of decimal fractions was known to the Chinese in the first century BCE (Joseph Needham, Science and Civilisation in China) but in Europe the modern decimal notation originates from the Dutch mathematician Simon Stevin (1548/49 - 1620) although the decimal point comes later and was in use by the time of John Napier.

The operations are the same as in decimal (+ - / x) the positional notation is somewhat different.

The decimal numeral system (also called base ten or occasionally denary) has ten as its base. Decimal notation often refers to a base-10 positional notation.

Two: "0" and "1." Digital (as opposed to analogue) computers all use binary arithmetic/notation, which is positional like decimal arithmetic/notation, but employs only two tokens (0, 1) in place of decimal's ten (0 .. 9). The term "bit" for the smallest unit of information, incidentally, is a contraction of the phrase "binary digit."
