Can some one guide me on place designation of Natural numbers?

As far as the definitions in vogue over centuries, I understand as well guide others that the place of Natural numbers are designated from Right to left in the order of Units, Tens, Hundreds, Thousands, etc.

However, it is confusing with BA voting for the answer against:

Request all knowledgable persons to guide me accordingly, so that either I can correct me or refrain from answering such questions in future.

    Welll!!!!!!!!

    Sir,

    I have gone through the question in the link and found that your answer is 100% correct..

    (though you made a mistake in calcualtion steps though)

    Answering Y!A Questions, especially Math and Science involves concentration, time, patience as well as working out.

    But, selecting a BA does not require all of the above...

    That too by voting, there is no need to look into the answer at all...

    Any click on any button will yield a point!!

    So, most peopel never read answers before voting!!

    Thus, please donot get confused with the mathematics over here!!

    This has nothing to do with the number system. It is all about the idiots who infest this site without paying any attention to what they are doing.

    People who vote on Best Answer do so for all sorts of reasons, like doing a favour for a friend, for example, which has nothing whatever to do with the answer being the best answer, or even whether it is correct or not.

    Many people voting have not read the question, or do not understand it. They want to gain a point by voting, that is all. So many answers which are voted Best Answer are not even correct.

    That is what has happened in this case. The "Best Answer" is wrong ! Notice that the other answer, which is in fact the correct answer, has also got 2 votes, so opinion is divided. We must conclude that the people who voted for the "Best Answer" are idiots who do not know what they are doing.
