# How do YOU handle 'extra' digits in PAO at the end of a number? (Examples pls)

I’ve had difficulty finding this answer. So any help is greatly appreciated. I’m looking with how to encode numbers that don’t divide evenly into 6 digits.

00 00 00
That would be “00 does 00 action to/at/with 00”

Then what would you use for the following?
(00 00 00) 0
(00 00 00) 0
(00 00 00) 0
(00 00 00) 0
(00 00 00) 0

My PAO has 111 entries, not 100… so I have entries for single digits as well as double digits (3 is a separate entry to 03).

The 111th value is basically for null action and object, when there is a person but not an object and perhaps not an action.
eg. 751 = [75] [1] [null]
1234567890 = [12] [34] [56], [78] [90] [null]

There are some more examples here:

(Most people seem to use an extra 10 images for 0 to 9.)

Couldn’t figure out how to edit my initial post. I meant to ask: What would be concrete examples of the following in YOUR PAO system? I think some examples would really help me out a lot!

The links given have been helpful , but they seem to explain more theory, rather than giving examples. I’m looking to see what images of fellow artofmemory-ites use for ‘null’ or ‘single-digit’ PAO systems. For instance, is there a preference to encode #3 above as 00 person holding 0 object (no action)? or would you use person 00 performing 0 action on ‘null’ object?

Alright, now it’s time for you to practice, try to figure out how exercises 1 and 2 works!
