**Khipu Notes:**

**Ascher Databook Notes:**

- By spacing and color patterning, the khipu is separated into 3 parts : part 1 is 3 groups, and parts 2 and 3 are 7 groups each.
- Part 1: Assuming that position 10 in group 1 is non-existent, this part consists of 3 groups of 20 pendants each. The color pattern is the same for all 3 groups (with the exception of position 17 in group 3). In all 3 groups, subsidiaries appear only in positions 3, 8,9, 11, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20.
- Parts 2 and 3:
- Each part is basically 7 groups of 18 pendants. The exceptions of 2 groups with 19 pendants are systematic. The 6th group in each part has an additional W pendant between positions 7 and 8.
- Each group in parts 2 and 3 has the same color pattern (with the exception of position 8 in groups 4 and 5 and position 18 in group 4). The color pattern is the same as in part 1 with the systematic difference that positions 5 and 8 of the part 1 pattern do not exist. Thus, there are 18 pendants in each group in parts 2 and 3 as compared to 20 pendants in each group in part 1. Also, while the color in position 19 of the groups in part 1 are B, in parts 2 and 3, the comparable position is BD.
- Subsidiaries on pendants in parts 2 and 3 are on a subset of the positions they are on in part 1. Namely, subsidiaries are only on positions comparable to positions 9,15,16,18,20 of part 1.

- Many values are uncertain due to breakage. However, we hypothesize that, position by position, values in group 1 of part 1 are related to the sums of values in groups 2 and 3 while values in groups 2 and 3 are related to sums of values in parts 2 and 3 respectively.
