    Your working is for
    415
    =4.5 + 1.1
    =20 + 1
    =21

    The units digit is multiplied by 1, and the second digit from the right is multiplied by the base, 5 in this case.
    If the number has more than 2 digits, the next digits (to the left) are multiplied by the subsequent powers of the base.

    Example:

    3217
    =3*7^2 + 2*7^1 + 1*7^0
    =3*49 + 2*7 + 1*1
    =147 + 14 + 1
    =162

    So
    415
    =4*5^1 + 1*5^0
    =4*5 + 1*1
    =21
