# Counting systems

You can configure what counting system you'd like to use with the command `/set system`

, and also when you create a new channel or link an existing one.

Here's a list of the different counting systems.

## 📄️ Decimal

The default counting system, what we humans use on a daily basis. Also known as the base-10 system.

## 📄️ Hexadecimal

The base-16 system. Color codes are usually in hexadecimal format, like #BD4632.

## 📄️ Binary

The base-2 system. This is how computers count. Simply "on" or "off" for a computer.

## 📄️ Base36

The base-36 system. This is a weird system where you count 0-9, and then a-z. It's mostly used for things like IDs.

## 📄️ Base64

The base-64 system. A really confusing and weird system to count with, but really unique. It is mainly used to transfer chunks of binary data over the internet without losing any information.

## 📄️ Roman numerals

The roman numeral system. Uses the letters I, V, X, L, C, D and M.

## 📄️ Math equations

Count with math equations to train your brain.

You can always run `/count`

to see what the next number will be. This is really helpful when counting in weird counting systems like base64.
