number & numer

These ROOT-WORDS are NUMBER & NUMER which means exactly what it looks like- NUMBER. How lucky we are that we live in a world where we express numbers by numbers and not by letters as the Latins did. I’ve copied out an example using Roman numbers and the corresponding Arabic numbers.MCCLXXXXIX :1289 and +MXXXVIII : +1038

NUMERation has certainly been made easy for us with the Arabic NUMERals and the Hebrew base of ten.
