How to use denary in a sentence
Each one was worth a denary, which was a coin worth about a shilling, or a quarter of a dollar.Dutch Fairy Tales for Young Folks|William Elliot Griffis
The numeration was in the denary scale, so that it did not agree absolutely with the notation.
But the system has never spread; and the word “dozen” itself is based on the denary scale.
The words eleven and twelve have been supposed to suggest etymologically a denary basis (see, however, Numeral).
There is no essential difference, however, between this and the denary basis.
