The Ndom language uses a senary numeric system, i.e. based on the digit six. The numbers names are created using both addition and multiplication on this base. Digits from one to six have specific names: sas , thef , ithin , thonith , meregh , and mer .
From seven to eleven, the numbers are formed by addition, using the conjonction abo: mer abo sas  (6+1), mer abo thef  (6+2), mer abo ithin  (6+3), mer abo thonith  (6+4), and mer abo meregh  (6+5).
Twelve uses the multiplication, with the particule an: mer an thef  (6*2).
From thirteen to seventeen, the addition is used again, on top of twelve: mer an thef abo sas  (6*2+1), mer an thef abo thef  (6*2+2), mer an thef abo ithin  (6*2+3), mer an thef abo thonith  (6*2+4), and mer an thef abo meregh  (6*2+5).
As multiple of six, eighteen has a special word: tondor  (6*3).
From nineteen to thirty-five, the addition is used again, on top of eighteen: tondor abo sas  (18+1), tondor abo thef  (18+2)… tondor abo mer abo sas  (18+7)… tondor abo mer an thef  (18+6*2)… tondor abo mer an thef abo meregh  (18+17).
Thirty-six, square of six, has a special word: nif  (6*6).
From thirty-seven to seventy-one, the addition is used again, on top of thirty-six: nif abo sas  (36+1), nif abo thef  (36+2)… nif abo tondor  (36+18)… nif abo tondor abo mer abo thef  (36+18+6+2)… nif abo tondor abo mer an thef abo meregh  (36+18+6*2+5).
Seventy-two is a multiple of thirty-six (but without the an particule): nif thef  (36*2).
Above seventy-two, the addition is used again, on top of it: nif thef abo sas  (72+1), nif thef abo mer an thef abo ithin  (72+6*2+3), nif thef abo tondor  (72+18), nif thef abo tondor abo mer abo ithin  (72+18+6+3).
One hundred is nif thef abo tondor abo mer abo thonith  (72+18+6+4).
