 OFFSET 0,2 COMMENTS These numbers are the values for the positions in the sumerian (and babylonian) alternating sexagesimal - decimal system (used at least up to  10*60^2 = 36000, but here extended). For the numbers in this mixed base system see A055643. For the number of symbols needed for representing n see A131650. For the number of digits (including 0) of the representation of n see A282622.
