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
