13 dtg = 35 decimal - or 32 (my left thumb) + 2 (my right index finger) + 1 (my right thumb)

I call it "Thirt-tuhn!" Pronounced: "Thir-tǝn". (By the way, the "tuhn" in "Thirt-tuhn" should be pronounced just like the "ten" in "forgot'ten'"). Again, it sounds somewhat akin "thirteen"; but not quite the same - because it ISN'T the same!

13 dtg (duotrigesimal, or Base 32) ≠ 13 decimal!

Again: 13 dtg = decimal: 32 (which is 10 dtg) + 3 = decimal 35, whereas

13 decimal = decimal 10 (which, I recall, I called "a" (pronounced "ah") in Base 32 earlier on this blog) + 3 = decimal 13 (which, again, I earlier called "d" (pronounced "dee" - just like we usually call it)).

Here! Let me spell it out like this!

DECIMAL, or Base Ten:

"13" - "Thir-TEEN"

the "10", or "TEN" gives us:

The "3" gives us: |||

DUOTRIGESIMAL, or Base Thirty Two:

"13" - "Thirt-TUHN"

The "10", or "TUHN" gives us

__IIII IIII IIII IIII__

__IIII IIII IIII IIII__(HERE, I'm using a stroke notation I invented for Base Thirty Two. Each stroke represents one value - so "II" is two. "IIII I" is five. "IIII IIII II I" is eleven. Once I reach sixteen, or "IIII IIII IIII IIII", I underline those sixteen strokes: "

__IIII IIII IIII IIII__". Therefore, above, we have (decimal) sixteen plus sixteen, which equals (decimal) thirty two.

The "3", again, give us II I, or "three".

Add them together? And you get "13" or "thirt-tuhn" in Base Thirty-Two; which is the equivalent of 35, or "thirty-five" in decimal, or Base Ten. Blessings!
