Hi, The algorithm for the 'symbolic' system is defined as: > To construct the representation, run the following algorithm: > > Let N be the length of the list of counter symbols, value initially be the counter value, S initially be the empty string, and symbol(n) be the nth counter symbol in the list of counter symbols (0-indexed). > > 1. Let the chosen symbol be symbol(value mod N). > 2. Let the representation length be floor( (value - 1) / N ). > 3. Append the chosen symbol to S a number of times equal to the representation length. > > Finally, return S. For value = 1, symbols being 0-indexed, symbol(value mod N) is the *second* symbol. It should be the first. For value <= N, this algorithm gives length = 0 and thus an empty representation. It should be length = 1 instead. Unless I missed something, lines 1 and 2 of the algorithm should be changed to: 1. Let the chosen symbol be symbol((value - 1) mod N). 2. Let the representation length be floor( (value - 1) / N ) + 1. -- Simon Sapin
