The number shape system is a type of Mnemonic Peg System where digits are assigned mnemonic images based on the shape of the number. For example, the number 1 might have an image of a candle, because 1 looks like a candle.

Some possible number shape images are:

  • 0 = ball, egg, doughnut, ring
  • 1 = candle, stick, spear
  • 2 = swan
  • 3 = butterfly, handcuffs, heart
  • 4 = flag, sailboat
  • 5 = hook, snake, Superman, seahorse
  • 6 = elephant's trunk, golf club, cherry, combination lock
  • 7 = boomerang, axe
  • 8 = snowman, hourglass
  • 9 = balloon on a string

There is also a way to use number shapes with binary numbers.
