# 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

Decimal is the default counting system that us humans use on a daily basis. It's also known as the base-10 system.

## 📄️ Hexadecimal

Hexadecimal is a base-16 counting system used in computing. It's often used to represent colors, as color codes are usually in hexadecimal format, like Countr's theme color #BD4632.

## 📄️ Binary

Binary is a base-2 counting system used by computers. In binary, each digit can only be 0 or 1, representing "off" or "on", respectively.

## 📄️ Base36

Base36 is a counting system where you count from 0 to 9, and then from a to z. It's mostly used for things like IDs.

## 📄️ Base64

Base64 is a system used to transfer binary data over the internet without losing any information. It's a confusing and unique system to count with.

## 📄️ Roman numerals

The Roman numeral system uses the letters I, V, X, L, C, D, and M to represent numbers. It's a system that has been used for centuries and is still used today in some contexts.

## 📄️ Math equations

Using math equations to count can be a fun way to challenge yourself and others. Give it a try and see how you do!

## 📄️ Alphabet

Count using the alphabet!

You can always run `/count`

to see what the next number will be. It will also tell you what the number is currently in decimal format.
