    56 / 2526

    You would do a long division just like with base 10, except that the multiplications and subtractions would be handled in base 6.

    I am unable to show the division with proper formatting at this forum.

    You can google "division in other bases", or simply the following link for an example:

    For the given problem, I got 0.01423 (the last digit being between 2 and 3, but I rounded up).

    There have been an unusual number of posts dealing with arithmetic operations in different bases in the last two weeks.
    I sure hope that it is not limited to a particular educational jurisdiction, since to spend that much time on a fringe topic cannot be justified.
    I can see doing some work in base 2 or base 16 because of its application with computers, but
    base 6 and base 7 ??????

    Yes, I was wondering too. Perhaps it serves as an introduction to number theory or discrete math.
