a. base six

b. base twelve

c. base two

I get how to write the number of objects as a base(whatever), but I think this is asking me to start from the end number and work backwards. I really need help. I have two different questions concerning this math concept.

**MathMate**, Thursday, September 3, 2009 at 5:27pmTo find the number 286 in base 12, you divide 286 by 12, note the remainder, and keep dividing until the quotient is less than 12.

286/12 = 23 R 10

23/12 = 1 R 11

286 in base 12 would be 1(11)(10).

If we use the usual notation where A=10, B=11, we have

286_{10}= 1BA_{12}

If you proceed the same way for other bases or numbers, you will get the right answers. Post your answers for checking if you wish.
