Khmernumerals are the numerals used in the Khmer language of Cambodia.

Romannumerals remained in common use until about the 14th century, when they were replaced by Arabicnumerals (thought to have been introduced to Europe from al-Andalus, by way of Arab traders and arithmetic treatises, around the 11th century).

Since the French use capital Romannumerals to refer to the quarters of the year ('III' is the third quarter), and this has become the norm in some European standards organisation, the mixed Roman-Arabic method of recording the date has switched to lowercase Romannumerals in many circles, as '4-viii-1961'.

The unary numeral system is the simplest numeral system to represent natural numbers: in order to represent a number N, an arbitrarily chosen symbol is repeated N times.

A numerical prefix is a prefix that denotes a number, which is usually a multiplier for the thing being prefixed.

In some sports, one is the number of a specific position: in rugby union, the number of the loosehead prop; in baseball, the number representing the pitcher's position; in football, the number of the goalkeeper.
