Two important details about a Base-B system is that they must always have _______ unique digit symbols and The highest face value of any digit must be one ________ than the value of the base. In our system, we have _____ digits, ________________________. The highest face value _____ is one less than the base value _____. 6 Other Bases Our system uses Base-10, thus we have ten digits which were created by Arabic Scholars and Traders.
