    It was titled Disme, The Arts of Tenths or Decimal Arithmetike and it was this translation which inspired Thomas Jefferson to propose a decimal currency for the United States (note that one tenth of a dollar is still called a dime). Stevin's notation was to be taken up . Many people regard arithmetic as a trivial thing that children learn and computers do, but arithmetic is a fascinating topic with many interesting facets. In this excerpt from ">Art of Computer Programming, Volume 2: Seminumerical Algorithms, 3rd Edition, Donald E. Knuth begins this chapter on arithmetic with a discussion of positional number systems.
