A Maya city from the Classic Period usually consisted of a series of stepped platforms topped by masonry structures, ranging from great temple-**pyramids** and palaces to individual house mounds. These structures were in turn arranged around broad plazas or courtyards.

**Maya mathematics** constituted the most sophisticated **mathematical** system ever developed in the Americas. The **Maya** counting system required only three symbols: a dot representing a value of one, a bar representing five, and a shell representing zero.

One **remarkable** thing about the **Mayan architecture** was the scale of the **buildings** and cities. … It also was **remarkable** because of the effort it took to build the cities. It took over 100 workers just to finish a single home of a nobleman, and even then, it took them two to three months to complete it.

**Mayan mathematics** are most **different from math today** in that the **Mayan mathematical** system was based on 20 (as opposed to 10), and it only had symbols…

The **Mayan** and other Mesoamerican cultures **used** a vigesimal number system based on base 20, (and, to some extent, base 5), probably originally developed from counting on fingers and toes. The numerals consisted of only three symbols: **zero**, represented as a shell shape; one, a dot; and five, a bar.

Two thousand years ago, the ancient **Maya** developed one of the most advanced civilizations in the Americas. They developed a written language of hieroglyphs and invented the mathematical concept of zero. With their expertise in astronomy and mathematics, the **Maya** developed a complex and accurate calendar system.

We know that a four digit **number** has four places, i.e., thousands, hundreds, tens and ones or units from left to right as Th, H, T, O. If **greatest** to lowest digits are placed at these places in descending order, we get the **greatest number** and if placed in ascending order, we get the **smallest number**.

The biggest number referred to regularly is a googolplex (10googol), which works out as 1010^**100**.

Infinity

**g64** is Graham’s **number**. First, here are some examples of up-arrows: is 3x3x3 which equals 27. An arrow between two **numbers** just means the first **number** multiplied by itself the second **number** of times.

**Graham’s number** is mind-bendingly huge. … the **biggest** prime **number** we know, which has an impressive digits. And it’s **bigger** than the famous googol, 10100 (a 1 followed by 100 zeroes), which was defined in 1929 by American mathematician Edward Kasner and named by his nine-year-old nephew, Milton Sirotta.

The really laymen explanation for why **TREE**(**3**) is so big goes like this. … **TREE**(**3**) dwarfs big **numbers** like **Graham’s number**. Big **numbers** like **Graham’s number** are impossibly big, **bigger than** our universe. In a way that means that understanding these **numbers** will help us understand something that goes beyond our universe.

**Graham’s Number**: This Enormous **Number Can** Create A Black Hole In **Your** Brain **If You** Try To **Memorise** It. … Apparently, the **number** was first published in 1980 Guinness Book of World Records. There are 64 steps to obtain **Graham’s Number** and each step involves a math procedure called Knuth’s up-arrow notation.

Googolplexian+1 is the **largest finite number**. Why does a googolplex exist if there is nothing close to any **number**, and how did we think of that **number**?

Different **infinite** sets can have different cardinalities, and some are **larger than** others. Beyond the **infinity** known as ℵ0 (the cardinality of the natural numbers) **there** is ℵ1 (which is **larger**) … ℵ2 (which is **larger** still) … and, in fact, an **infinite** variety of different infinities.

So H(1, **10100**) will be much larger than Rayo’s number. But then we can consider H(2, **10100**), which is the least the least number that cannot be described in first-order set theory supplemented with a constant symbol that picks out Rayo’s number and a second constant symbol that picks out H(1, **10100**).

Ten to the **100th power** is the number 1 followed by **100** zeros, also called a “googol.” A googol exceeds the total number of atoms in the observable universe. The word “googol” was first used by Milton Sirotta in 1938.
