**33-Numbers in Ved**
The numbers in Rig Ved, from 1 to 9, are Ek, Dwe, Tri, Chatur, Panch, Shat,
Sapt, Asht, Nava

The names for 10 to 90 are given in 2.18.5-6

The intermediate numbers have appropriate names, 94 is expressed as 90 + 4;
19 is expressed as "1 less than 20".

The same pattern is seen in Roman numerals too - nothing for zero and
till 4 you can increase the numbers, like 94, but when it comes to 19, it
is expressed as "1 less than 20" (IXX).

--Rig Ved 3.9.9 has a number 3339, spelt as three thousand, three hundred and
thirty-nine.

--Rig Ved has more than a 100 references to numbers.

--Ved was using lots of Numbers and even there is reference about 10

--The Atharv Ved (6.25.1-3 and 7.4.1) especially emphasize the common
relationship between 1 and 10, 3 and 30, 5 and 50 and 9 and 90 and so on,
clearly indicating that the people of the Vaidik age had a good grasp of the
basics of Decimal System for positive integers.

--The number 432 (4 hundred and 32) million occurring frequently in Sanskrit words
occurs in Atharv Ved in 8.3.21.
