EtymologyEdit

Ten circles

From Middle English ten, tene, from Old English tīen, from Proto-Germanic *tehun, from Proto-Indo-European *déḱm̥t. Cognate with Scots ten, tene ‎(ten), West Frisian tsien ‎(ten), Saterland Frisian tjoon ‎(ten), North Frisian tiin ‎(ten), Dutch tien ‎(ten), German zehn ‎(ten), Swedish tio ‎(ten); and with Sanskrit दश ‎(daśa), Persian ده ‎(dah), Ancient Greek δέκα ‎(déka), Albanian dhjetë, Latin decem, Irish deich, Serbo-Croatian deset. See also teen.

The use of ten to represent a perfect specimen derives from the practice of ranking items or people on a scale from 1 to 10.
