when you're rounding up?

or binary, but you have to say "when is 11 half of 6?"
if you write the word "eleven" you actually mean 1011 (binary), XI, etc.

oh, wait read that backwards. base11.

11 in binary is half of 6.

6 in base11 is half of eleven.

// actually, that would most likely be 5.

// the answer to #2 is base one, by the way.
