Description 



Digit: The symbols used to write numerals. 
In the base ten system, the digits are 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and
9. In numeration systems based on place value, the place the digit is written
determines the actual value of the digit. For example, in the number 83, since
the digit 8 is in the tens position, it represents 80. The 3 lies in the ones
position and represents 3.
