a) 128 = (5 * 25) + (3 * 1) = (5 * 5^2) + (0 * 5^1) + (3 * 5^0)

in base 5 __ 503

b)128 = 2^7 = (1 * 2^7) + (0 * 2^6) + (0 * 2^5) + (0 * 2^4) + (0 * 2^3) + (0 * 2^2) + (0 * 2^1) + (0 * 2^0)

in base 2 __ 10000000

c) 128 = (10 * 12) + (8 * 1) = (10 * 12^1) + (8 * 12^0)

in base 12 __ A8

9 is our largest numerical digit, so we switch to letters after that
