Plenty of info on the sites Wiki pages
https://artofmemory.com/wiki/Dominic_System
and
https://artofmemory.com/wiki/Major_System

Although I have not read where it explains how to remember when there is a dot in a decimal number. Though, I imagine it is not too difficult to establish that the first possible 6 numbers is before the comma and the next 5 is after the comma.

E.g. 283200.133438 dollars. We can say dollars, or carrots. I like carrots but hard to split them into 0.133438 portions of a whole carrot.

First recognise a pattern between them.
Except 2. and 5 all numbers starts with 0.
So forget about 0. Part now.

• hourglass fell (ball hits)

2 - duck

001 - cannon

25 - sleigh

Now , as we know all numbers starts with 0.
So 8. = 0.8.
2 = 0.2
001 = 0.001
25 = 0.25

Except cases = those numbers that doesn’t starts with 0.

1. = bird carrying ball in his leg

5 = hook (anything that reminds you of 5)

One option is to use standard form, with some modified structured system like the Major System.

So for example:

• 3,400,000 becomes 3.4 × 10^6 [store as 6 34]
• 3,434,343.434 becomes 3.434343434 × 10^6 [store as 6 434343434]
• 340 becomes 3.4 × 10^2 [2 34]
• 0.034 becomes 3.4 × 10^–2 [–2 34]
• 3.4 becomes 3.4 × 10^0 [0 34]

This is fine for all numbers between 0.000,000,001 and 9,999,999,999.999…

You just need to have something to encode the negative sign.
