Shows the original Arabic numerals and the code for how it was obvious what each numeral stood for.

- Why do our digits look the way they do?
- Why do we write our numerals the way we do?
- What do angles have to do with the way we write our numbers?

This video is very interesting as it shows how we came to write our digits the way they are currently written. It shows the way they can be written so the pattern is clear, and it counts up all of the angles in each digit.
