In mathematical numeral systems, the radix or base is the number of unique digits, including zero, that a positional numeral system uses to represent numbers. For example, for the decimal system the radix is ten, because it uses the ten digits from 0 through 9. In any numeral system, the base will always be written as "10". For example, "10" represents the number ten in the decimal system; "10" represents the number two in a base two system.
