Question on converting between bases that are not binary

Let’s take an example:

Question:

STEP 1.

Convert the number from its base to base 10

The number in the question above is in base 5, so for our first step, convert it from that base 5 to base 10.

Use the step-by-step method explained on how to convert other base to base 10 for this first step

Converted:

2445 

= 7410

STEP 2.

Convert the new number in base 10 to the required base

Our new number gotten from the first step above is in base 10, so for our second step, convert it from that base 10 to the required base 8.

Use the step-by-step method explained on how to convert base 10 to other base for this second step.

Converted:
