A Chinese abacus is called a Suan Pan. It works because it is based upon the decimal system, so the beads are used to count groups of ten.

It depends on what it says in the constitution if it works to one. otherwise its powers are as strong as its ability to enforce its orders.

It works in powers of 10, so figures such as 100 and 1000 are especially important. There are 100 centimetres in a metre and 1000 metres in a kilometre for example.AnswerThe SI system is based on ten, raised to the power of multiples of three. In other words, micro-. milli-, kilo-, mega-, etc. Centi-. etc., are NOT used in the SI system.

A device that works on the idea that something is on or off. In computers 0=off 1=on. The abacus was considered digital because the beads were either on of off.

What do you mean by special powers? We worship a Goddess and a God! We use magick to aid us in works of healing and worship. However if you mean special powers like superman than no, witches do not have special powers.

The advent of computers caused a return to binary from decimal. The abacus, the first digital calculator, was in use in Ancient China and is based on The Tao, the basis of the Chinese religion that one requires a place to put something before you can have something. Tao Te Ching: In the beginning was the Ought: chi(the one) entered the Ought, and the one became yin(the two), the two became yang (the three), and the three became the ten-thousand things (everything of one kind) in The Cosmic Image. It basically has similar reasoning to science's Big Bang Theory! The Chinese abacus and the Roman abacus look totally different, but they both seem to be based on two hands with five fingers on each; Roman numerals follow the same pattern. Could you explain in detail how the Chinese abacus also works on a one-two-three principle ?
