Deaf people have improved this slightly :-)

They consider a hand with only the thumb extended to mean "6", while the index finger means "1". Zero is signed by forming a round shape using the thumb and index finger. This way they can sign the numbers 0 .. 9 using one hand only.

How do they do 5? Did you mean 5 when you typed 6?

"5" is your hand with all fingers extended, "9" is all fingers except the pinky extended.

"10" is signed "1" then "0".

I thought 10 was a thumb wiggle.
