Question on converting between bases
Let’s take an example:
Convert 2445 to a number in base 8
1. Convert the given number from its base to base 10
The number in the question above is in base 5, so we convert it from that base 5 to base 10.
2. Convert the new number in base 10 to the required base
Our new number (74) is in base 10, so we convert it from that base 10 to the required base 8.
244 (in base five)
= 112 (in base eight)
