    a) you are talking about numerals

    b) See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindu-Arabic_numerals and laugh at yourself a little. Here, an excerpt:

    The numerals arose in India between 400 BCE and 400 CE. They were transmitted first to West Asia, where they find mention in the 9th century, and eventually to Europe in the 10th century. Since knowledge of the numerals reached Europe through the work of Arab mathematicians and astronomers, the numerals came to be called "Arabic numerals." In Arabic language itself, the Eastern Arabic numerals are called "Indian numerals," أرقام هندية, (arqam hindiyyah) and a different set of symbols are used as numerals.

    Source(s): by the Indians, certainly :P
