The D'Ni civilization is technologically advance and like any such civilization I would expect that there would be a large number of books concerning science, mathematics and engineering topics. One of my age projects requires the use of some mathematics so I am designing a D'Ni calculator that uses the base 25 D'Ni number system. I thought it might be fun for at least some explorers who might discover this device to play with it and discover its secrets. What I need to know to complete this project is what sysmbols the D'Ni might have used to identify mathematical operations. This render of my D'Ni calculator design has the following keys:
Memory Set, Memory Recall, Log 25, Log Natural, power of e, clear display
arc, sin, cos, tan, pi, on/off
square root, square x, exponential, reciprical, change sign +/, equal
the D'Ni numerals on the left
math operations on the right including radix point at the bottom.
BTW the trees will need to be redesigned but that is the least of the work at this point.
