We currently use base-10 number system, this means our number are built from 10 characters (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), we use this because we have 10 fingers, the base-12 use 12 characters instead of 10, that means adding 2 more charecters like : ᘔ and 3 .

Some researchers said that switching to base 12 have many advantages, some of them are : twelve is the number of months in a year, hours on the clock, and the number of eggs in a carton, etc...
