Time is base 12.

Hang on..... just because the base is represented as "10" that doesn't make it Base 10.

It's only Base 10 if it is decimal. Duodecimal has "10" as the representation of the base but it is Base 12.

10 In duodecimal is 12 in decimal, duodecimal is base 12

That's what I said. So the base is 12, but is represented by "10"

Aztecs were base 20, I believe. We just use '10' to represent a translation of our understanding of the base.

And Aztecs would have called our decimal 20, "10" so in their mind they were base 10

No lol i think you are confused. its just the most common system so we use base 10 numbers to represent other bases. Binary is not 1 and 0 but on and off. And hexadecimal has letters

If my frame of reference was binary and I represented on with 1 and off with 0, I would say my base is 10

If your frame of reference was binary you wouldnt represent on with 1 because that would be foreign to you. Aztects didnt use base 10 numbers either they had all unique numbers

What?

Hexadecimal is 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f,10, they would say their base is 10, because in the decimal system they would say it is 16 and so in Hexadecimal they would say 10

No. Their base is 16 because there is 16 bases to build larger numbers out of. Also there is no "10" in hex you are thinking of 0, only 1 and 0 and decimal is 0-9 which is 10 bases

1 and 0 next to eachother is 10 is it not

No? By that logic 5+0 equals 50. Not all numbering systems even use 1 and 0 like the aforementioned aztec system

Ok how do you say decimal 16 in hex?

Offset one zero

I would write that as 10, how would you write it?

Nope. Hexidecimal color wheel. 000000 is white, ffffff is black. Hexidecimal is therefore "base f".

F in hex is 15 in decimal

So all number bases are binary and duodecimal too?
