Do the Belgians and Swiss still use septante, huitante/octante, and nonante instead of soixante-dix, quatre-vingts, and quatre-vingt-dix? That system never caught on in France though...
The Belgians use nonante but not huitante and the Swiss use huitante and nonante (not really sure for the Swiss but that's what I've heard).
From what I know, the base 20 system comes from the celtic culture so logically, it gradually died when you go to the east.

Re: Math question

Also practice your addition,multiplication and division skills.
Don't laugh but to keep my mind ticking over I do this.
Walk around the nearest car park,select random car number plates and in my head either add the numbers,multiply or divide.Simple,less sedentary than sudoku and it keeps the mind sharp.

Re: Math question

I'd argue that Mathematics is much more interesting than Arithmetic. Mere numbers are a bore.

Sudoku is logic, not math, to be fair.
