WE HAVE JUST COUNTED 5 FIGURES (10 – 14) WE WILL NOW CHANGE COUNTING SYSTEM. HOW? “15” IS THE MIDDLE BETWEEN10 – 20. AS WE ARE COUNTING FROM 10 – 15 WE WERE ASCENDING BY SAYING 10 PLUS 1, 10 PLUS 2, 10 PLUS 3, E.T.C. TILL WE GOT TO THE MIDDLE WHICH IS “15”. SO TO COUNT FROM 15 – 20, WE WILL BE DESCENDING BY SAYING 20 MINUS 5, 20 MINUS 4, 20 MINUS 3, E.T.C. TILL WE GET TO “20” WHICH IS CALLED “UGIE”. The full meaning of Ekesugie “15” is “OKẸ ISẸN NỌSUGIE” Meaning (it remain 5 to get to 20 or 20 minus 5.
ENẸN IRỌVBUGIE MEANS 20 MINUS 4
EHA IRỌVBUGIE MEANS 20 MINUS 3
EVA IRỌVBOGIE MEANS 20 MINUS 2
OKPA IRỌVBUGIE MEANS 20 MINUS 1
UGIE MEANS “UYE’ WE WILL EXPLAIN THIS IN CLASS 3.
HAPPY LEARNING.
