Sexagesimal

Sexagesimal

Project description
If an American child who had been educated in the traditional American way were to work the multiplication problem 1995 x 381, his/her work would look as follows:

(long hand multiplication).

What would the work of a Babylonian child using the same method look like for this problem?

Be sure to convert the original problem 1995 x 381 to sexagesimal, showing commas between places, to get started. There is no need to use cuneiform, just make sure

that the places are separated by commas and there is never anything bigger than a 59 in one place. Show all marks for “carrying” too. Be sure to convert your base 60

answer at the end to base 10, in order to check your work.

Accompany your work with an explanation of your process and thinking.
