To get them across a river that lay between his farm and the town, he had to ferry them across in a rowboat. But the boat was so small, it could carry only one of them at a time besides himself.

How would the same numbers be written in the ten-scale? 23 104 36 215 64 420 Let's do the first two together for practice. The number 23 means 2 eights plus 3, or nineteen, which in the ten-scale we write 19. The number 104 means 1 Sixty-four plus no eights plus four, which in the ten-scale would be 64 plus 4, or 68.
