I use WIKI 2 every day and almost forgot how the original Wikipedia looks like.
What we do. Every page goes through several hundred of perfecting techniques; in live mode. Quite the same Wikipedia. Just better.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In English and related languages, several terms involving the words "great" or "gross" (possibly, from French: grosse thick) relate to numbers involving a multiple of exponents of twelve (dozen):

  • A gross refers to a group of 144 items (a dozen dozen or a square dozen, 122).[1][2]
  • A great gross refers to a group of 1728 items (a dozen gross or a cubic dozen, 123).[1][2]
  • A small gross[3] or a great hundred[4] refers to a group of 120 items (ten dozen, 10×12).

The term dates from the early 15th century, from the Old French grosse douzaine, "large dozen”.[5] A gross may be abbreviated as "gr" or "gro".

The continued use of these numbers in measurement and counting represents a continuation of the tradition of the duodecimal number system in everyday life[6] and has encouraged groups such as the Dozenal Society of America to advocate for a wider use of such a numbering system in place of decimal.[7][8]
