Major system (“Peg” System) - The Major System is also called the “Peg” method because it helps you remember numbers of any size by using numbers as if they were pegs to hang memories on. This is more powerful and useful than the Number Rhyme and Number Shape systems, as it deals with larger numbers more efficiently.
