## How to Memorize Numbers using Consonant System

There are many mind techniques to help you memorize/ remember numbers. The "consonant system" aka "phonetic system", involves associating numbers with letters.

Each number is assigned a consonant based on some kind of recognizable relationship between the two, for example:

0 = Z or S (Zero starts with Z) 1 = T or D (one downstroke) 2 = N (capital N rotated 90°-clockwise resembles the digit 2) 3 = M (capital M rotated 90°-clockwise resembles the digit 3) 4 = R (capital R looks like 4 backwards; R is also the last letter of FOUR) 5 = L (Roman Numeral for 50 is L) 6 = G (the digit 6 looks like a G) 7 = K or C (capital K contains two mirrored 7’s) 8 = F or B (cursive F and capital B look like a figure-8) 9 = P (capital P is a mirror-image of the digit 9)

For Example:

326 = MaNGo

927 = PiNK

8577 = BLaCK
