The Effects of Duodecimal and Hexadecimal Benchmarks on Package Size Evaluations

We demonstrate positive effects of Hexadecimal and Duodecimal (H/D) numbers on consumers’ product evaluations, preferences, and willingness to pay. These effects are mediated by the round-like number properties of H/D numbers and by the perceived convenience of the change in package size and moderated by the dominant measurement system.
