## How do DNA bases pair?

The rules of base pairing (or nucleotide pairing) are:

- A with T: the purine adenine (A) always pairs with the pyrimidine thymine (T)
- C with G: the pyrimidine cytosine (C) always pairs with the purine guanine (G)

## How do the bases pair up in transcription?

Bases that bond together are known as complementary. During transcription, DNA is converted to messenger RNA (mRNA) by an enzyme called RNA polymerase. In DNA/RNA base pairing, adenine (A) pairs with uracil (U), and cytosine (C) pairs with guanine (G).

## What does G pair with in DNA?

The rules of base pairing (or nucleotide pairing) are: A with T: the purine adenine (A) always pairs with the pyrimidine thymine (T) C with G: the pyrimidine cytosine (C) always pairs with the purine guanine (G)

## Why do we use base 10?

The base 10 system allows for simple explanations of hundred tens and units etc. Using a base two system such as the Arara tribe in the Amazon would get very repetitive and confusing rather quickly but on the other hand using a base 60 system it would take a long time until you exchange it for another to start again.

## Where would base 60 be useful?

The base 60 number system is still used for measuring time – 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour – and for measuring angle – 360 degrees in a full turn.

## Why we should count in base 12?

Not only does counting in base-12 allow us to have nicer numbers in division as well as recurring patterns in multiplication, it also paves a smoother path for children to learn basic multiplication.

## Is it true or false that our decimal system uses 10 as a base?

Terms in this set (30) Our primary counting system is based on binary digits to represent numbers. The decimal system has a radix of 100. Negative powers of 10 are used to represent the positions of the numbers for decimal fractions.
