Decimal and octal number systems

You must be well familiar with the decimal number system. After all, we have been using it since we first started learning to count. But have you noticed that each position in a decimal number system can be expressed as a power of 10? For example, we can write 13 as:

13 = 1 \times 10^1 + 3 \times 10^0

Hence, we can also say that the base of the decimal number system is 10 and it contains ten unique symbols from 0 to 9.
