**BPFK Section: Digits**

The base of a number string should be base-ten, unless:

- explicitly specified by ju'u, AND/OR
- the string contains hexadecimal digits, in which case it is defaults to hexadecimal, AND/OR
- overridden by context

It should not be necessary to state this in the cmavo definitions here, but rather in the definition for ju'u.

I assume that it is unnecessary to formally define the mechanism of big-endian positional notation. At any rate, I am unable to do so myself.

## Usage for decimal digits

*cacra li revo .a li pare*

It lasts for 24 or 12 hours.

*mi tatpi .i li paci vi tcika*

I'm tired. It's 13 o'clock here.

*li paze pi'e ci*

17:03

## Usage for hexadecimal digits

*li dau re ci vai vai vai vai vai*

A23FFFFF

## Proposed definitions

## Interactions with other sections

The sections with ju'u should state that digits are in base-ten, unless they contain at least one hexadecimal digit, or they are explicitly specified by ju'u, or the base is overriden by context.

## Impact

None intended.
