## radix

<*mathematics*> The ratio, R, between the weights of adjacent
digits in positional representation of numbers. The
right-most digit has weight one, the digit to its left has
weight R, the next R^2, R^3, etc. The radix also determines
the set of digits which is zero to R-1. E.g. decimal (radix
ten) uses 0-9 and each digit is worth ten times as much as you
move left along the number.
