Find the representation of the number 256 in the following bases:
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.

    To 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
    28610 = 1BA12

    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.
