    triangle represents ∆ (1) and circle represents ○ (0). If triangle appears in unit’s place then only its value is 0. If it appears in 10’s place its value is 1 and when it appears in 100’s place is doubled to 2 like that it continues. Questions based on this
    For example:
    ∆ ○ =0+0=0
    ∆○∆∆∆= 8+0+2+1+0=11

    . How will you represent ‘29’ in this code language?
